Big Sweep 2020: A Big Success

High Point Big Sweep took place on Saturday, November 7 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. With a new location and new guidelines, it was the same event with a different look. It was also a big success. With less than half of our normal number of volunteers we still managed to collect more recycling and tires than last year! We also had more than twice the food donated than we have in years past and are so grateful to be able to help that many more people in need! We are so grateful for having such a supportive community behind us!
