Wiregrass businesses make an effort to boost census response rates
DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Throughout Wednesday, businesses across Alabama made an effort to help the state reach its 90% census response rate goal.
Wiregrass companies participated in Drop Everything and Get Counted.
It’s the statewide day of action where employers set aside time in the workday to allow workers to complete the 2020 census.
Many employers also supplied computers to do the survey on and educated staff on the importance of an accurate count.
“We just want to play our small part in helping to get those census numbers up because it is so important. People from time to time ask me what can I do to help the community. Well this one thing you can do to help your community be better,” says Wiregrass Electric chief operating officer Brad Kimbro.
If you haven’t completed the census yet, you can do so by mail, online, or by phone.
