Guam – The Yigo Mayor’s Office and Domino Lux Fraternity partnered up over the weekend to help prepare Simon Sanchez High School in time for the first day of school.
About 40 volunteers from the DLX came out to the Yigo campus over the weekend to help paint the building, pick up trash and get rid of debris around the school grounds.
DLX member Joe San Agustin says the group also donated about 20 pieces of 55-gallon drums to be used as trash bins. He explains that he got a call from the governor’s education liaison Vince Leon Guerrero asking for assistance with the school’s cleanup.
“He told me that Simon Sanchez is not adopted by any of the GovGuam agencies or anybody. So we said okay, Domino Lux will take the call and there’s probably maybe about 40 of us, if not more, here cutting the grass … we’re picking up, we’ve got rid of all the computers that were here and tvs,” says San Agustin. “On the [trash] drums you notice it’ll say stop bullying, say no to drugs and keep guam clean. All positive messages and that’s what our fraternity is about, it’s about being positive, our fraternity and sorority.”
San agustin notes the Yigo mayor’s office also provided a dump site for all the trash and debris collected from the group’s cleanup efforts.
