September is the final month of the 2020 Census -- and San Carlos Apache Tribe leaders say they urgently need more San Carlos Apaches to be counted!
The census determines how much federal money San Carlos receives over the next 10 years for roads, social services, schools -- support for the San Carlos Healthcare hospital, Apache elders and preschoolers.
And get this: only 12 percent of San Carlos Apaches have been counted as of last week.
How can you help?
Every Monday during September, stop by Nolines in Peridot between 10 a.m.- 2 p.m., and ask Kodee, Debi or other friendly census workers to help you complete your census -- they will be equipped to complete them right there, onsite, and will send you home with freebies, too, as a Thank-You!
In fact, it has never been easier to complete your own census. The 2020 census can be done easily online, and those who don’t have a computer or internet access may call a toll-free number and provide your info over the phone. That number is 844-330-2020, follow instructions, and a census worker will take your information over the phone. Again, that number is 844-330-2020.
