Charlottesville streets should look a little cleaner after a group of nearly 20 volunteers from Sojourner's Church took to the streets after service.

Church members were joined today by members of Innisfree Village, a community of adults with intellectual disabilities, to attend church then do their share of helping the environment.

They say they try to go out every few months to pick up any trash they see.

"We have a good chance to kind of get to know eachother a little bit with somebody we don't normally deal with," said Cris Schamp, a volunteer with the church. "We'll do it in the winter on some nice days but some days in the summer, we've had some real short pickups when it gets hot we've cut it kind of short but we have a great time."

The church organizes the street cleanups every few months.
