Imperial, California - Imperial Irrigation District employees have a long tradition of supporting the community by giving to the local United Way.

During IID’s 2018 United Way fundraising campaign, district employees pledged nearly $80,000 in funds for the United Way of Imperial County ($66,854) and the United Way of the Desert ($12,462), which serves the Coachella Valley.

Representative check presentations were made by the IID Board of Directors to the charities during the March 6 and March 19 board meetings in La Quinta and El Centro.

The support provides critical resources for the local United Way agencies, which work to improve lives and support thriving communities across Imperial and Riverside counties.

As a group, IID employees continually are the single largest annual donor to the United Way of the Imperial Valley and the district’s La Quinta Division employees regularly lead in per capita giving to the United Way of the Desert.

IID’s 2018 United Way fundraising campaign included a special appreciation day for those employees who contribute to the charities. Additionally, pledge cards were displayed in the district’s El Centro and La Quinta division offices.
