Drive-Up Points of Distribution Open for Hillsborough County Residents

Hillsborough County has opened four drive-up Points of Distribution (PODs) where residents impacted by Hurricane Irma can receive water, nonperishable food, and “shelf-stable” meals that can be made quickly. The PODs are open Saturday (Sept. 16) and Sunday (Sept. 17) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at:
  • Al Lopez Park, 4810 N. Himes Ave. in Tampa
  • Church of God Wimauma Convention Center, 5408 State Road 674 in Wimauma
  • University of South Florida Lot 18 T, intersection of USF Sycamore Drive and USF Elm Drive
  • Sydney Dover Trails, 535 N. Dover Road in Dover
Residents in vehicles will line up single-file, enter the location, receive items, and then exit through another location. Drivers and passengers must stay in the vehicle. They will be asked to “pop the trunk” and workers will load the items into the vehicle. 

More information on recovery resources is available at or by calling (813) 272-5900.
