NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Areas of Nashville still need to be cleaned up after they were flooded with water just a couple of weeks ago.

On Sunday, volunteers with Hands On Nashville are coming together at Whitsett Park in South Nashville to do just that.

The floodwaters may have receded, but the park is still filled with garbage from the surrounding community. The water rose so high that even some of the trees were full of trash.

There will be two chances to volunteer on Sunday to clean up the park. The first shift is from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the second is from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Volunteers are asked to wear closed-toe shoes and bring their own water bottles.
