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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Introducing Adventure Paws

Tulare County Animal Services is introducing a new program called Adventure Paws to the public! You can take one of their dogs out for the day and have your own adventure! You must be at least 18 years old to participate and have a reliable vehicle, but beyond that the possibilities are endless. You could go shopping at a dog-friendly store, go for a walk, take a hike, or hang out at home and watch a movie. Regardless, it's sure to be a Doggone Good Time!

The process is simple: just sign up for a time to stop by Tulare County Animal Services and pick up a dog friend between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. You’ll fill out an application, and TCAS staff will bring you a dog that is friendly and that seems to match your plans for the day. Then off you go to have some fun! Staff will send along with you all the supplies you might need for your day, including a leash and collar and a kit that contains poo bags, water, water bowl, treats, a blanket, toy, and their Do’s and Don’ts information sheet. Make sure to bring your new friend back before 2 p.m. the same day.

All TCAS asks is that you take some photos and fill out the pet’s report card to let them know how your dog did! TCAS will use the information you provide to help find a forever home for that pet. Use the link below to sign up for any available date, Tuesday through Saturday. TCAS hopes to hear from you soon!
