Dickey Foundation conducts fundraising initiatives across the country to support police and fire. Along with traditional fundraising Dickey Foundation is also sponsored by Dickey's Barbecue Pit and Frito Lay. The two companies have created a shared initiative to give back to the community by donating a portion of all Frito Lay products sold in Dickey's Barbecue Pits nationwide to the charity .
