Last updated 11/11/2023 at 12:13pm | View PDF
The holiday season is a joyous time for many. Families gather to celebrate, spend time together, and look forward to the new year. This time of year can be difficult, though, for homebound senior citizens experiencing isolation, with limited resources and support.
To add a little holiday cheer to their lives, these seniors will receive a stocking filled with donated cold-weather items and hygiene products during the annual Kings/Tulare Area Agency on Aging (KT AAA) Stockings for Seniors Drive.
KT AAA, CSET Senior Services and HHSA Adult Services are partnering in this drive and invite the community to participate by providing seniors with needed supplies. Donations can make a difference and put a smile on a senior's face.
Tulare County businesses, community partners and residents are encouraged to donate items such as lap blankets, mittens, socks, scarves, beanies, toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo/conditioner, deodorant, Q-tips, etc., dropping them off in the red donation bins located at many county offices, as well as at Starbucks. Donations will be accepted through November 29.
If you wish to make a monetary donation, you can donate online at FriendsTC.org, or send a check to 5957 S. Mooney Blvd., Visalia, CA 93277 (write "Stockings for Seniors" in the memo line of your check). Amazon will deliver purchased items to the designated receiving location.
For a list of donation drop-off locations or for further information, please contact Bonnie Quiroz at (559) 972-0323 or (559) 713-2877.
