IT MAKES SENSE TO COME TO YOUR CENSUS

This community service project focuses on bringing awareness about the funding that the census impacts through the schools and community by running a sticker and bracelet drive. Community members can take the sticker and bracelet to the Union County Performing Arts Center to get free tickets for the APA Vocational Spring Musical.

COUNTING OUR COUNTY

This community service project spreads awareness through schools by bringing the conversation of the importance of the census through peer-peer approach. It also includes a visual representation of how many people the census represents by creating paper people cut outs that has students fill out a small pledge worded “I count in” and the student’s name and grade. On the back of the paper cut outs will contain facts about the census and what it impacts. These paper cut outs will be hung within the schools. By filling out the paper cut outs, the students will be automatically entered into a raffle of gift cards etc. There will be a winner for each high school that participates.

COUNT ME IN 2020
