Using jQuery, how can I combine these two animate statements into a single animate statement?

Try this:
$(document).ready(function() {

 $('.info-pops .show-info-pop').click(function () {
  var par = $(this).parents('.info-pops');
  par.add('.info-pop',par).animate({
                height: '+=50'
            }, 333, function () {
                // Animation complete.
  });

 });

});

You could just go to the parent of all and find the descendants you want to animate:

$(document).ready(function() {
   $('.info-pops .show-info-pop').click(function () {
       $('body').find('.info-pop, .info-pops').animate({
                height: '+=50'
            }, 333, function () {
                // Animation complete.
        });
    });
});
