We talked about the many things in the community that the Visalia Assistance League does here in our community. Their programs concentrate on the children of Tulare County, helping 11,084 children and families in 2018 through five ongoing programs.

Their annual rummage sale along with their DISNEY RAFFLE & annual Kentucky Derby event raises thousands of dollars to continue these local programs that help many under served children & families in our community.
