Thank you to Cumberland County Commissioners Vincent T. DiFilippo, Jim Hertzler, and Gary Eichelberger, and U.S. Census Representative Cindy Dwyer for visiting East Pennsboro Elementary School on October 29 to talk with our fourth graders about the importance of the U.S. Census. Students learned about the history of the Census and what the Census means to our communities.
“Since the children are learning about Pennsylvania history and civics, we thought this was a perfect opportunity to teach the children about the 2020 census,” said Commissioner Vince DiFilippo. “Most of the children are 10 years old, and this will be the first census in which they will be counted in Cumberland County.”
Dr. Dunar, East Pennsboro Area School District Superintendent said, “We urge all of our families and residents to complete the 2020 Census Survey. Every person matters and needs to be counted to ensure that our community gets its fair share of federal funds for our schools, hospitals, roads, and other vitally important services.”
April 1, 2020 is Census Day. Every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census.
Once the invitation arrives, residents should respond online, by phone, or by mail. That’s just 155 days away! Let’s be counted!
