Echo Park woman heads to Haiti

Cheney Shapiro, who works with her father at Silverwood Properties in Echo Park, will be flying to Haiti Thursday with Volunteer Ministers, which is part of the Church of Scientology, as part of a private earthquake relief effort. The Echo Park resident will be accepting donations today at her Echo Park Avenue real estate office before departing to the disaster zone.

“We will be there for 2-3 weeks,” Shapiro said in an email.
“I’m really not sure what it is we’ll be doing. There is so much to do and it’s so crazy over there I think it’s pretty much whatever’s needed at the time.”

Ken Shapiro provided more details in email.
