Shadow Hills Gets a Clean Up from United Groups

Cynthia Urias, Kameron Hines, Barbara Cordova Oliver and Guillermo Quiroz worked together to help Shadow Hills Property Owners Association with the cleanup last weekend.

Cynthia Urias, the Shadow Hills Property Owners Association (SHPOA) volunteer organizer, organized a cleanup of neighborhoods in Shadow Hills on Sunland Boulevard on Saturday, July 6. Among those who lent a hand were volunteers with The Scientology Volunteer Ministers (VMs). VM Barbara Cordova offered to help with other VMs she knew, including Shadow Hills resident Kameron Hines, who is the VM director at the Church of Scientology of Los Angeles. The VMs also helped with the cleanups after the Creek Fire that struck the Sunland and Shadow Hills areas last year and are often on the scene following many natural disasters.

Around 14 people answered the call. They began at the Shadow Hills Presbyterian Church and headed west on Sunland Boulevard for many miles. Several trimmed the overgrown brush along the way, while others picked up the trash that was strewn about on the sidewalk and even spruced up a shopping center parking lot that was full of litter. They improved the overall image of the environment, creating a visible difference.
