is one of the nation's largest annual community improvement programs that harnesses the power of over 4 million volunteers to build vibrant communities. Each year, over 1,200 affiliates and participating organizations engage through programs that deliver positive and lasting impact through events focused on waste reduction, recycling, beautification and community greening.
Despite a switch-up that had us move cleanup from April 24 to a new date on May 1, we are proud to say that Great American Cleanup 2021 was still incredibly successful! We had 190 volunteers work together to help remove litter and debris from 27 locations across High Point. Those volunteers collected over 1,940 pounds of trash and 560 pounds of recycling. We also collected over 200 non-perishable food and household items to aid in the fight against hunger in High Point! Awesome job everyone, we hope to see you next year!
This event would not be possible without the support of our sponsors:
Blue Ridge Companies - The High Point Rockers - Leggett & Platt - Pinnacle Financial Partners - Thermo Fisher Scientific - Vomela Motor Sports Design.
We have the best volunteers you can find! In April 2019, our volunteers removed 5,600 pounds of litter from roadways, streams, ponds, City Lake, parks, the Greenways and school campuses! Not only that, but students from several High Point schools planted flowers on their campuses courtesy of Keep High Point Beautiful.
