LYNN HAVEN, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - Lynn Haven city officials called on all residents to help clean up debris from Hurricane Michael.

Some locals answered the call with rakes and garbage bags in tow Saturday.

Volunteers cleaned up along the streets surrounding Lynn Haven Elementary School.

City trucks picked up the trash and debris as volunteers bagged it up.

Families, including the Kime family, took advantage of the cleanup event.

"I think that it is really special to see that everybody coming together and working together, it just is so incredibly happy to see everybody working together," daughter Emily Kime said.

For Tommy, Jennifer, Emily, and Joshua, they spent time together while bettering the community.

"Well, I think the community is going to take lots of teamwork and it's going to be all hands on deck and I think what a better way to teach our children that teamwork then to volunteer to help others," mother Jennifer Kime said.

During the first cleanup event in January, the city had about 200 volunteers who helped pick up 92,000 pounds of debris.
