The community group wants to make sure all South Georgians are counted in the 2010 census to ensure state and federal funding for the region.

"Everyone is vitally important for the growth of the city and the nation. So basically the census is a portrait of America. And on April First, 2010 every person living and breathing on U.S. soil should be counted," said Malone.

The U.S. Census was created by George Washington, and is conducted every ten years.
