BRAWLEY — A school supply drive on Saturday afternoon collected plenty of backpacks, pencils and notebooks for local students while providing an opportunity for the community to network and meet local officials.

Held at Brownie’s Diner, Gil Rebollar’s second annual School Supply Drive featured Coffee with a Cop with members of the Brawley Police Department, as well as opportunities to meet Brawley Elementary School District’s new superintendent and to speak with a Salton Sea Community Outreach representative.
