My name is Napua Burke and I served as minister to the Hawaiian Congregational churches (Topside Molokai UCC Churches) from 2013 to 2016. At the end of 2016, I returned to Hilo to care for my mother and I continue to be grateful for the kind words and messages I received at the time of her passing.
My husband and I have continued to maintain a home in Molokai because we love this island and its people. We have not visited Molokai since the beginning of the pandemic for obvious reasons. Recently though, I began working for the Census and I have volunteered to come over to Molokai in December to conduct what are called Post Enumeration Surveys, which is basically a method of verifying that accuracy of the information received during the census. Sixty-eight addresses have been randomly selected for the interviews. I volunteered because the interviews will help to determine the services Molokai will receive in the coming years and I think that’s important because Molokai deserves the best.
As I may be coming to your home or homestead, I want to assure everyone that I will have had a COVID test and during our interview I will wear a mask, and keep social distance as I conduct interviews outside your home. If you any questions please feel free to contact the Census Bureau at 213-314-6260 or go online at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you so much and I really look forward to seeing everyone.
