As the Bookkeeper at historic Hopewell Presbyterian Church in my hometown of Huntersville, NC, I also care for my elderly grandmother here. Living in Midland, NC, with my family and our two cats, Elliott and Benevelo, I take immense pride in the impactful work we do at Cabarrus Meals on Wheels. It’s an honor to combat the lack of access to healthy, nutritious meals for the underserved in our community.
As a healthcare worker employed by Atrium Health Cabarrus, the health of our community members is near and dear to my heart. The delivery of a nutritious meal and the brief social interaction that is associated with that delivery make a significant difference in our neighbors’ lives. It helps to keep them healthy and out of the hospital. I am proud to have volunteered as a driver and now as a board member.
Employed at Food Lion, a local grocery retailer with a strong sense of caring for our community members, fighting food insecurity is important to me. Providing nourishment and valued engagement to clients is so fulfilling and takes so little time and effort. The impact made is heart warming to me, and I am proud to be part of this work and the board.
Our board of Directors is a working board comprised of local community leaders and representatives with expertise in varying areas including fundraising, marketing, law, accounting, information technology, health with emphasis on senior care, and overall passion for seniors.
Board members serve a 3-year term, attend regular meetings and special events, serve on two Board Committees, participate in delivering meals, assist in the recruitment of volunteers, and function as goodwill ambassadors and spokespersons for the organization and its programs.
