The Community Council has been distributing long-sleeved shirts in all the locations they have offices.

The Community Council of Idaho will be handing out long-sleeved shirts this Thursday at its annual shirt distribution event. Every year the non-profit collects shirts and gives them to farm workers to make sure they're protected from long days in the sun.
