Become a Volunteer for Meals on Wheels in Montgomery County

Montgomery County Meals on Wheels needs your help. We are looking for volunteer site coordinators at the Biscoe and Troy meal sites. We also need volunteers for delivery routes County wide. 

Meals on Wheels are more than just a meal. To many seniors the friendly volunteers who deliver meals in Montgomery County are the highlight of the day. Volunteers also help keep on eye on recipients' well-being and safety. Delivery time is typically between 10:30am and 1:00pm. Even one day a month makes a difference.

To find out how you can help, please call 910-572-0050 and leave your name and number. We'll call you back and provide more information. Or you can email Dema Cranford for more information. 

ATTENTION MEDICAID BENEFICIARIES: NOTICE OF YOUR RIGHTS UNDER HAWKINS v. COHEN 

Para aviso en español haga click aquí.

Hawkins v. Cohen (5:17-CV-581 E.D.N.C.) is a federal lawsuit filed in 2017 on behalf of Medicaid beneficiaries in North Carolina. The case concerns improper terminations of Medicaid benefits.

 The Court hearing the case has certified it as a class action. This means that the case is to help not just the people who filed the case but other Medicaid beneficiaries whose Medicaid has been or will be terminated improperly. 

The Court has ordered the N.C. Medicaid agency to stop terminations or reductions of Medicaid benefits until eligibility under all Medicaid categories has been considered and advance notice of the right to a hearing has been mailed to you.   For example, if you get Medicaid based on having a minor child who is turning eighteen years old, your county Department of Social Services must consider whether you are disabled before they stop your Medicaid.

If you have any questions about this lawsuit or about your rights, you may contact the attorneys who filed the case, the Charlotte Center for Legal Advocacy. You can reach these lawyers by calling this toll free number: 1-800-936-4971. You can also send the lawyers an email at Hawkinsinfo@charlottelegaladvocacy.org.

You also may contact these lawyers if you want to report that you lost your Medicaid without a decision that you were no longer eligible for Medicaid under any category or without receiving advance written notice that your Medicaid would stop. There is no cost to you for any help that these lawyers provide to you.
