This annual fundraiser and donations are critically important in helping to provide necessary services to the elderly in the greater Dripping Springs Area. With your support we are able to provide meals for Our Daily Bread – a hot meal delivery program for the home-bound, medic alert devices for summoning help in an emergency, financial assistance for low income seniors in times of dire need, funding for special events at Hill Country Nursing and Rehab for their residents, and numerous other programs beneficial to the elderly. The Friends Foundation is proud to be an all volunteer non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.

Last year, the community’s support was phenomenal in our fundraising efforts. As Dripping Springs grows, the needs of the elderly in the community are increasing. We have been meeting these needs for a long time and we count on you to help us each year.

Thanks to the loyal support we have received for decades we are able to continue our work. Our hope is those new to the community will help us continue these good deeds by joining us with their support. “Doing good deeds to meet the elderly’s needs” ™

We sincerely appreciate this year’s Sponsors, businesses and individuals who contributed to our Silent Auction and our Live Auction. And a BIG THANKS to our vendors, all of our volunteers, Hot Texas Swing Band for their music and Shelly Elena Photography too.
