DeLeon Carter Foundation provides gift to feed seniors.
Meals on Wheels of Rocky Mount announced a recent grant received from the DeLeon Carter
Foundation to support the Meals on Wheels Frozen Food Program. This program provides frozen meals to seniors
in crisis situations, seniors on the Meals on Wheels waiting list and our area seniors who do not have other
hot meal food providers. This grant will enable Meals on Wheels to provide over 1000 meals to these seniors in
need. The DeLeon Carter Foundation was established in 1987 by the late Myrtle Carter Henry. Since it began
making grants in 1997, the DeLeon Carter Foundation has given over $900,000 in much needed grants.
