Friends of Tulare County, in collaboration with the Kings/Tulare Area Agency on Aging (K/T AAA), CSET Senior Services, Tulare County Adult Protective Services, and the Public Guardian's Office, invites you to participate in the annual Stockings for Seniors Drive. Each year your hard work helps us provide holiday stockings to isolated and homebound seniors in Tulare County, many of whom often have no family nearby to visit them during the holiday. These stockings are a chance to bring some holiday cheer to the seniors.
This year, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we are having to change the way that we fundraise and reach out to the seniors, as safety is our main priority. COVID-19 has also changed the number of seniors who are currently homebound or isolated; due to the closure of the local senior centers, that number has tripled, with an estimate of 1,700 seniors to deliver a stocking to this year. Below are the ways that you and our community can help:
You can help by dining at Chipotle on Tuesday, December 15, from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., located at 4219 S. Mooney Blvd., Ste. B, Visalia, CA 93277. You can either bring the attached flyer or order online with promo code 6WC9798.
You can help by purchasing See's Candies online.
Goodies range from $8–$45 and offer a profit of 25%–50%. Orders will be sent directly to the address of your choice, with orders over $65 receiving free shipping. You can complete your Christmas list AND help keep a senior warm this season! Feel free to share this link with your friends and family.
