Have you completed your 2020 Census? If you haven’t, there is still plenty of time to do so. There will be two more Census events happening in the next week to help answer questions about the Census or assist those who need help filling it out.
- June 27: Farmers Market, Kingsport Farmers Market from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Pick up your veggies and complete your Census! Staff will be present with a laptop and be ready to help and answer any questions. Attendees who visit the table who haven’t completed their Census are encouraged to do so at the table. There will also be free Census swag items for those that stop by! (Kingsport Farmers Market, 308 Clinchfield Street)
- June 29: Girls Inc. of Kingsport from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. At this event, a Bays Mountain educator will be attending, so be sure to bring the family!

You can find both of these upcoming Census events on the Kingsport Alerts Facebook page.

Getting an accurate count in next year’s U.S. Census is important to Kingsport and Sullivan County. By completing the 2020 Census, you can help our communities receive the funding, services, and business support they deserve and need. Over the 10-year span until the next Census is conducted, tens of millions of dollars are at stake.
Please be sure to attend one of these upcoming events to ensure that all of our neighbors are counted in the 2020 Census. For more information about the 2020 Census or to fill out your Census online, please visit 2020census.gov.
