'March to the Mailbox' Campaign Encourages Census Participation

Staff Reports

Want to avoid a knock on your door, and get a thank-you besides? This Saturday, April 10, the Berkshire Census Partnership in collaboration with the United States Census office, will kickoff of the "March to the Mailbox Campaign" in North Adams and Adams.

The aim of the event, which runs from 11 to 2, is to thank people for participating in the census and to encourage those who haven't done so to "march to the mailbox and mail in your Census form." Balloons, T-shirts, hats and more will be given away.

This is the final campaign for mailing back the census forms before census workers (enumerators) are sent out to knock on doors of non-responding households. The event will be going on in the following locations: Rite-Aid in North Adams; Price Chopper in North Adams, and Val’s Variety Store in Adams.
