Big Sweep General Flyer 2021-01

High Point Big Sweep 2021, our annual fall litter cleanup event and food drive, is back and is happening at 1300 E. Hartley Dr. from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. Volunteers throughout the city will work together to clean streets, parks, streams, and lakes of litter and debris. All supplies will be sanitized and provided to volunteers! Staff will have Covid safety protocols in place (masks, gloves and sanitizer and social distancing) and we encourage all volunteers to do the same for the safety of others. Participants are also encouraged to bring canned food donations for local food banks. Each food item counts as one entry into our drawing to possibly win one of five $100 gift cards courtesy of Blue Ridge Companies or one of four restaurant gift cards courtesy of Leggett & Platt, Inc!
