Southeastern Community Action Partnership along with North Carolina’s other 34 community action agencies work to improve conditions for marginalized communities. We know the COVID-19 pandemic has presented additional challenges for many individuals and families. This event is our way of supporting our local communities by providing those essential items that individuals and families need.
How can individuals and families participate?
Individuals and families from our seven-county service area will drive through at Robeson Community College where our staff, partners, and volunteers will place items in your vehicle. We will provide additional services such as COVID-19 testing, vaccination, and job and housing support, and information about our early head start and head start programs.
We recommend that families who plan to attend arrive early as supplies are limited. Once 2,000 individuals or families are served, we will begin to turn others away.
What happens on the day of the event?
Drivers will use one dedicated entrance to access the Big Pop Up and will be guided on where to receive food and supplies. Everyone MUST remain in their vehicle at all times. Items will be placed in the vehicle’s trunk or back seat.
This is a safe event and we’re asking all participants, families, and volunteers to please practice COVID-19 safety protocols including frequent hand washing or sanitizing, social distancing, and wearing a mask.
How can I help support The Big Pop Up?
The Big Pop Up is a collaborative effort of sponsors, partners, and volunteers – this event is designed to de-stigmatize the need to ask for a helping hand.
We welcome the community’s support. After all, we are able to accomplish more as a community when we support each other.
