The 2020 Census population count is done once every 10 years but impacts our lives daily. Census statistics touch everyone from the old to the young, people of all incomes and backgrounds, and those in cities, suburbs and rural areas.

Many of these programs are the lifelines that communities are depending on today as they work to protect the health and well-being of their populations during the coronavirus pandemic.

These programs are feeding children even though schools are temporarily shuttered, providing health insurance for low-income people and those over 65, and supporting first responders.

Among these programs:

- Medicaid assistance under Title XIX, the largest federal program that uses census statistics to inform funding.
- The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps.
- The National School Lunch Program.
- Medicare.

THIS is why you should complete your census today if you have not done so already. If you need help, we at the Downtown San Diego Area Census Office are here with a local phone line. Call and see how easy it is to change your community for the better of us all.

Dear Sir or Madam,

I presently do not own any windsurf equipment and tried unsuccessfully to rent from you on this weekends Saturday morning.

I was very disappointed in the staff and the manager. I was denied windsurf rental without your "prequalification" for $75. I was still denied after I explained that I am an expert windsurfer with 20 plus years experience with race experience on the S.F Bay. The manager said they hear the same story all the time which turns out not to be true. You could have accessed my true abilities and knowledge within 15 minutes but it's all about the money, $75 for your prequalification. I will not and do not recommend your rental facilities.

I walked across the parking lot, to your competitors and rented a SUP instead.

Lost opportunity for a valuable customer, too bad.
Having time to play your (insert favorite board sport here) can be tough will a full time job and a busy life style. Check out 3 simple ways to cross train for board sports here goo.gl/QZH2Nv!
We so enjoyed the Reach STEM meeting with you all - Thank you for leading Matt
Congratulations on your nomination for WSIA: Water Sports Industry Association’s Camp/School of the Year award!
