Caring for God’s Gift and Home to All Creation
The Church of God concerns for the health and well-being of our planet and makes efforts to help protect the environment. Pollution and climate change are among the many challenges that put our planet in jeopardy. Because human beings are the cause of these issues, we can also be the solution.
Volunteers organize activities, such as environmental cleanups and tree plantings, to promote a clean environment. Through forums and tabling events, they share information and educate their neighbors on the negative effects that pollution and climate change have on the environment and demonstrate sustainable changes everyone can make to combat these global issues.
More than 140 Church of God volunteers assisted in the Appelt Park Japanese Knotweed Removal project.
Over 115 ASEZ WAO volunteers removed more than 200 bags of trash from Webster Avenue in Norwood, NY, as part of their efforts to promote cleaner and more sustainable communities. Local government officials attended the cleanup to show their support.
On July 8, 2019, ASEZ volunteers from four colleges in Orlando, Florida partnered with Keep Orlando Beautiful and the Orlando Police Department to remove graffiti and debris near Eagle’s Nest Elementary School, located in the MetroWest neighborhood.
