PEMBROKE — Tribal Chairman Paul Brooks presents a plaque to representatives of Chick-fil-A of Lumberton for their
support in the Robeson County Point-in-Time Count.
The event was held to count the number of homeless people in Robeson County. Chick-fil-A donated breakfast biscuits
and coffee. The Lumbee Tribe housed the homeless at their Boys & Girls clubs in Pembroke and the Allenton community.
"We would like to express our gratitude to Chick-fil-A for joining us in giving a helping hand to the homeless population
throughout the county," Chairman Brooks said. "With Chick-fil-A's help we were able to feed dozens in our communities
who are less fortunate."
