Volunteers from the World Mission Society Church of God cleaned up two park in Elizabeth Sunday afternoon.

Around 40 volunteers headed to Jackson Park and Veterans Memorial Waterfront Park to pick up trash and debris.

The main goal is to maintain a clean environment at the park that is also child-friendly.

"We'd like to show the community it's time to do good - it's time to be one with God by sending example of cleaning the environment and taking care of everything," said Joshua Castillo, one of the volunteers. 

The group travels all over the country and internationally tries to make a difference in local communities.

All of the volunteers cleaning up the park are from New Jersey.
