VOLUNTEERS will clean up “adopted spots” all over the island today.

More than 3,000 have signed up for the Beautify CNMI!’s 1020 on 10/20 program, and these include acting Gov. Timothy P. Villagomez and his family who will help clean up As Perdido Road from Beach Road to Chalan Msgr.Martinez.

In Kagman, Reps. Cinta M. Kaipat Covenant-Saipan, and Absalon Waki, Covenent Saipan, will lead volunteers in cleaning up the stretch of the road from the top street down to the village area.

The islandwide cleanup campaign starts at 7:30 a.m.

The Beautify CNMI! 1020 on 10/20 program aimed to enlist at least 1,020 cleanup volunteers, but Angelo Villagomez, the group’s restoration chairman, said they had already exceeded their target number as of Wednesday.
