On behalf of the County of Tulare, the Friends of Tulare County Emergency Relief Fund Program is accepting donations to support the COVID-19 response.
This relief fund is accepting in-kind donations of supplies at Government Plaza (Visalia) and at all Tulare County-operated fire stations.
There is a real need to assist our residents who are isolated or quarantined due to contracting or being exposed to COVID-19. Many of these households are facing unexpected financial hardships due to job loss or the inability to return to work due to the virus. Many were not prepared to stay at home for an extended period of time, some live alone, and others do not have family in the area who can assist. As we continue to support those affected by COVID-19 and serve those who are most vulnerable, we are committed to the health and safety of our community members.
Please consider donating financially and/or donating the following essential items and PPE requests, as our combined efforts can help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
