PRYAF partners with the Census to provide free at-home coloring kits 

–The US Census has joined efforts with community-based partners to reach the hardest-to-count populations in California. The Paso Robles Youth Arts Foundation (PRYAF) is one of those partners.

The COVID-19 outbreak forced the U.S. Census Bureau to adjust 2020 Census operations to protect the health and safety of the American public and Census Bureau employees. The deadline to complete the Census has been extended to Sept. 30.

PRYAF says they want the community to know how important it is to submit your 2020 Census data. Census numbers will determine government resources for the community such as schools, food, health care, housing, transportation, roads, senior centers, and much more.

PRYAF will distribute fun and free, Census Coloring Books and Art Kits on the following dates:
