Get Counted, Get Free Food  

If you were living in Marfa during 1990, 2000, or 2010 you might have seen a flurry of community events helping everyone get counted for the United States Census. This year was different. The stay-at-home orders of the pandemic made it more difficult to get everyone counted by the upcoming September 30 deadline
Help us make sure every Marfan gets counted. Marfa Steps Up is teaming up with the Judd Foundation to partner with the Rio Grande Council of Government’s Far West Texas Census2020 effort. We’ve got a ton of great prizes including $50 gift cards at Porter’s, $50 gift cards at Convenience West BBQ, and free burritos at Marfa Burrito. And we’ve got large DQ Blizzards to give away, too! 190 winners will be selected to win one of these prizes.
Getting counted is easy—just use the form to enter your phone number. Census workers will call you from the (202) area code to get you counted and you’ll automatically be entered to win a prize.
