JACKSONVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Another cash mob is popping up in Eastern North Carolina, this time in Onslow County.

Kim Perkins said she got the Facebook group idea from the City of New Bern. Perkins added that she sees how the COVID-19 pandemic continues to cause business struggles in the area. She said she hopes that the “cash mob” will help the community.

“People will share what they found at these local businesses, and it’s a great way of free advertising for these local businesses that have probably been hit by the pandemic,” Perkins said.
