Hundreds of people came together in High Point to take care of their city.

On Saturday, the city of High Point and Keep High Point Beautiful hosted their 30th annual Big Sweep clean-up event.

The Big Sweep was made up of about 600 volunteers at 30 different sites who cleaned up streams, lakes, parks and some streets to keep debris and litter from washing into local water ways.

Volunteers also cleaned up litter around the High Point section of the Greenway that loops around High Point and Greensboro.

Rebecca Copeland - the Beautification Supervisor of the event - said volunteers brought canned-food items to donate to local food banks.
