The High Point Big Sweep 2023 scheduled for Saturday, October 7th, 9 AM - 1 PM
Please plan to join us for the fall city wide litter cleanup on Saturday, October 7th! The event focuses on litter removal from our streets, streams, lakes and shorelines, parks and the Greenway. This event also provides a great way to meet new people and help beautify our community! Food and supplies are provided. Please click here to register!
We will meet at the Pinnacle Financial building located at 1585 N. University Parkway to start the morning off with some delicious doughnuts from Krispy Kreme and to give everyone their cleanup supplies. Registration will open at 8:30 AM. Once your group has completed cleaning your area, please plan to come back for a pizza lunch from Little Caesars and we'll have water, soda and Gatorades as well.
All volunteers are entered into a drawing to possibly win one of five $100.00 Visa gift cards courtesy of Blue Ridge Companies or one of four $50.00 restaurant gift cards courtesy of Leggett & Platt Inc. This event is also a food drive, and all donations of nonperishable food will go to a local pantry here in High Point. Each item donated earns the donor an additional ticket into the prize drawing.
For more information, please contact Rebecca Coplin at email@example.com or 336-883-3520.
