RANDOLPH COUNTY SOCIAL SERVICES WILL SEE CITIZENS IN-PERSON BEGINNING OCTOBER 15, 2020
Randolph County Department of Social Services (DSS) closed to in-person public contact on March 23, 2020 due to the state of emergency amid the COVID-19 pandemic. On September 1, 2020, DSS began offering limited in-person services by appointment only. Effective October 15, 2020, services at Randolph County DSS can be obtained on-site without an appointment.
In-person service is only available at the main office in Asheboro at 1512 North Fayetteville, Street, Asheboro, NC. In-person services are not available at the Archdale office.
At this time, “in-person” does not mean “face-to-face.” When arriving at the DSS Office, all COVID-19 safety protocols are observed. You will be met at the entrance to the building and your temperature will be taken and you will be asked a series of questions about travel, potential exposure and symptoms. If you have a fever, travelled out of the country, or have recent exposure to COVID-19 or have symptoms of COVID-19, you will be asked to come back after an appropriate quarantine period or contact us through electronic or other non-contact methods.
Once cleared to enter the building, you will be required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing. A mask will be provided if you don’t have one. Please be aware that your contact with an eligibility services intake worker will be live and in real time, but virtually through electronic means by way of devices set-up for your visit. You do not need to bring a device or smart phone with you.
Should the appropriate waiting and service spaces within the building be at capacity under the COVID-19 guidelines, you will be given a pager and asked to wait in your vehicle until space is available.
Please remember, the same options for non-contact services exist and will remain in place. You can complete an application for most economic services on ePass at: https://epass.nc.gov/ . Your Randolph County caseworker is available by phone or email. You can also pick up applications and then drop them off at the drop box.

If you have other questions, please call (336) 683-8000.
Randolph County Supports the Military By Donating Blood
Asheboro, N.C.— On October 29, 2020, Randolph County Government will be sponsoring its 11th annual blood drive to support the military. It will be held from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. at the National Guard Armory located at 1430 S. Fayetteville Street, Asheboro, NC. It’s easy to save lives! By committing to give blood, you help ensure that blood is available when it is needed most. Give blood by scheduling your donation appointment online. Face masks will be required and they may still be administering COVID antibodies test prior to donating.
The Armed Services Blood Program (ASBP) is the official U.S. military blood program. Providing an opportunity for service members, their families, and civilians to support our military in a definitive, meaningful way, the ASBP is a direct connection between those who give and the sick and injured who need their help. You’ve got what it takes to save three lives with a single donation.
Many Randolph County citizens have served, or are serving, their country. Some of those possibly have benefited from blood donated via this program.
Blood donated directly to the ASBP equates to fewer units they have to purchase from an outside source. Yes, “purchase.” Other sources of blood are sold to agencies that need the supply, including to the military. Our military has already given so much; giving back to them is one way of saying thank-you for their service.
Donations will support deployed military, Womack Army Medical Center, and other military treatment facilities within the Department of Defense. The Fort Bragg Blood Donor Center is one of more than 20 Armed Services Blood Program blood donor centers worldwide. The Armed Services Program is the official military blood program of the United States and provides a direct connection between those who give and military service members in need of life-saving blood.
Make your appointment today by one of the following:
• Using our online scheduling system located at: www.militarydonor.com and Sponsor Code: ASHE
• Contacting 336.318.6340

April 21, 2020 - Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program
We are excited to share that North Carolina just received approval for the Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) program to help more families purchase food during the COVID-19 pandemic. The P-EBT program provides a benefit on an EBT card to North Carolina families whose children have access to free and reduced lunch at school.
The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS) is working to operationalize the program and P-EBT recipients will receive this benefit in coming weeks. More than 800,000 children are expected to receive help buying food through the P-EBT program.
Families will not need to apply for the P-EBT program. P-EBT eligible families already receiving Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) benefits will receive an additional benefit on their existing EBT card. P-EBT eligible families not already enrolled in FNS will be mailed a new EBT card in the next few weeks. Families who receive a new EBT card will receive a letter from DHHS in the mail explaining how to activate and use their card.
NCDHHS, working in collaboration with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, requested activation of the P-EBT program for North Carolina families to use during school closures. This request was approved earlier today by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
This new P-EBT program is in addition to other services families may be participating in currently. We encourage families to continue utilizing local school and community meal sites for free, nutritious meals for children. Families can text FOODNC to 877-877 to find local meal sites. The service is also available in Spanish by texting COMIDA to 877-877.

Beginning immediately (April 8, 2020), The Randolph County Sheriff’s Office will begin accepting NEW Concealed Handgun Permit applications by mail only, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

April 1, 2020
Hello, North Carolina neighbors! The U.S. Census Bureau has been working for more than a decade on the 2020 Census, and today is an important day. April 1 – Census Day – the reference day for the 2020 Census. We use this day to determine who and where you are counted in the 2020 Census. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRYHXR5nL98 You should include everyone who usually lives and sleeps in your home as of April 1, even if they are staying somewhere else temporarily. This includes relatives, friends, roommates, and anyone else who lives and sleeps in your home most of the time—even children under 5 and babies born on before April 1, even if they are in the hospital. We are strongly encouraging the public to respond to the 2020 Census online using a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, or tablet. You can also respond by phone or mail, and you can complete the 2020 Census online in English or 12 other languages and find assistance in many more. It has never been easier to respond on your own—all without having to meet a census taker. This is your chance not only to shape your future but North Carolina's future. Shape your future.
