K/T AAA - Kings/Tulare Area Agency on Aging

The Kings/Tulare Area Agency on Aging helps provide programs and activities for local senior citizens, from arts and crafts to Medicare counseling, line dancing to home-delivered meals. Your donations to the Area Agency on Aging will help us continue to provide a wide range of services and activities to encourage older Americans to remain healthy, active, and involved in the community.

At-Risk Youth (Human Services)

The funds donated to the Human Services At-Risk Youth fund benefit youth who are participating in an employment program and working to make the transition to adulthood and self-sufficiency. This program helps youth in need of emergency monies for necessities such as transportation, work apparel, utilities, medical, dental, and prescription expenses.

Suicide Prevention Task Force (SPTF)

SPTF envisions a county without suicide and aims to accomplish this by implementing a full range of strategies, starting from prevention and early intervention. Your donations to the SPTF will help increase prevention and early intervention services, and help our community members better understand and recognize the signs and symptoms of suicide risk.

Veterans Services

Contributing toward the support of our local veterans through the VSO General Fund is a great opportunity for the members of the community to give back and thank veterans for their services.

Tulare County Parks–Lily Pond

For more than five decades the Lily Pond was a popular water feature in Mooney Grove Park. Due to the increasing cost of repair and maintenance over time, the Lily Pond is been non-functional for the past 15 years. To avoid demolition and to honor the history of the Lily Pond, the County is seeking donations from the community to help repair and restore the Lily Pond.

Step Up

Your donations to the Step Up program will be used for collateral items (i.e., T-shirts, backpacks, etc.), venue rental, event food, printing, speakers' fees, awards, materials, and other items associated with Step Up—a movement to encourage youth to participate in extracurricular activities, foster positive associations, and connect to constructive social networks.

Homeless Fund

Donations to the Homeless Fund will help supply toiletries, clothing, identification card/application fees, furnishings, or cooking utensils/appliances, or may fund expenses like a utility bill or car repair for those experiencing, at risk for, or exiting homelessness.

Donating the Paw-fect Gift!

This holiday season is a paw-fect time for those who would like to support our Tulare County Animal Services! There are needs throughout the year, but helping our staff care and support these wonderful, adoptable pets as well as those displaced by natural emergencies is so important. 

If you are attending our 2022 Agency All-Staff on October 26, you have the perfect (or paw-fect ) opportunity to drop off a new, unwrapped dog or cat toy, soft treats (no biscuits), or canned wet food (dog - Pedigree; kitten/cat - Authority). If you want something to be a pur-fect fit, consider scanning the QR code below and taking advantage of the TCAS Amazon Wishlist (click on flyer to download).

You also can help our shelter pets in other ways by donating securely online via Friends of Tulare County to support the TCAS General Fund or send in a donation check to FTC (5957 S. Mooney Blvd., Visalia, CA  93277; write “Animal Services General” in the memo line), or consider making a financial donation via our FTC Employee Pledge Form, in which you can contribute monetarily from your paycheck (the form must be signed by the employee).   

Your generosity makes a difference in so many lives.
