Local church gathers trash to create better place for community

Local News

A local group fought the rain Sunday in order to make their city a better place. 

Divergent City Church took to Peoria’s south side in order to clean a local park.

It’s all part of their monthly “Love Our City Cleanup effort.”  

The group has been cleaning up Peoria since August and they say they are doing it just to make their city a better place.

“We want to be a church that represents that we do care about it,” says Gary Velasquez, Lead Pastor Divergent City Church. “We do love you. There’s value in these streets, in these communities, in these parks where the kids play in. We want to cherish it. We want to value it.”
