CALEXICO — The Imperial Irrigation District, Wednesday, donated a number of supplies to the Brown Bag Coalition, a non-profit organization that helps the homeless, and to its neighbor, Catholic Charities Our Lady of Guadalupe Shelter for men.

The district donated numerous items (bed sheets, comforters, towels, pillows, pillowcases, camp cots, first aid kits, miscellaneous toiletries, etc.) no longer needed from the IID’s employee sequestration period conducted earlier this year.
