Students taking it upon themselves to clean Oka Point

Posted: Updated:

It's a scenic landmark turned illegal dump site, but a group of students from George Washington High School called the "Hafa Squad" are taking problems at Oka Point into their own hands and planning a community event to clean up the hangout spot they hold so dear. The group includes students Eric Lizama, and John Mendiola, with fellow member Kyle Aquino, who said, "We noticed a lot of trash and so we decided one day, if we have enough time, we're going to try to clean up the place as much as we can."

"All we ask is for you guys to come out and help us, not only help us but the community of Guam."

Gloves and trash bags will be provided for the cleanup, which takes place this Sunday from 5:30am to 12pm at Oka Point in Tamuning.
