Our Mission: To feed the hungry! Because we care!
Thank you, friends of LaCare!
Burnet area residents donated a walloping 7,700 pounds of food during the 18th Annual National Food Drive on Saturday May 14. "Stamp Out Hunger" is the nations largest food drive and is sponsored by the National Association of Letter Carriers. Thank you to all who donated and a huge thanks to the Burnet area letter carriers! They persevered through the rain, bringing meaning to the phrase, “neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds”.
A huge thanks to Pedernales Electric Cooperative for a $200 donation to LACare. PEC employees help support the groups that provide vital services throughout PEC’s service area. The employees determine where the money goes and how much each organization receives.
Thank you to Burnet's Sigma Epsilon Pi Sorority for your generous donation of $750 to LACare and other nonprofits. The donation to us represents a portion of the proceeds from their annual fund raising garage sale.
