Lakeshore Corridor Community Team (LCCT) was established in 1999 to provide acts of kindness in the community south of QEW between Clarkson and Lakeview. LCCT has evolved but maintains the original objective of building community by connecting people who have with those in need. LCCT is a registered charity and is overseen by a volunteer board of eight directors.
In addition To Random Acts of Kindness, LCCT has in recent years established a strong collaboration with The Compass Food Bank and Outreach Centre. We strive to augment the Compass core activities with unique and standalone initiatives.
In 2018 LCCT established the “Jim Tovey Kids to Camp” program funding 80 “kids weeks” of summer camp for children in the Compass community. We also collaborated with the compass for our 6th annual “Gift of Christmas ” party hosting 80 children and their families for an afternoon of fun with Santa and his elves. Everyone shared a great meal, had photos taken with Santa, received awesome gifts, played games, sang, made crafts and generally had fun time. We supported various initiatives like “The Shoebox Project’, the diaper drive, the BITE4Christmas and individual request.
All of our activities are 100% volunteer run, thereby meeting one of LCCT’S objectives of fostering connections between those who have with those in need to make Lakeshore Corridor a better place for all. LCCT is thankful to the growing legion of volunteers who appreciate the opportunity to pay-it-forward and the camaraderie enjoyed at our events. It is a great way to meet likeminded people and contribute to the wonderful community that is the Lakeshore Corridor.
LCCT’s fundraising initiatives includes our popular fun “Paddle for the People ” sponsored by Waterside Inn and hosted by the Port Credit Royal Canadian Legion 82., and usually held on the 4th Saturday in August. This year’s event will be held on August 24th. Entry fee is $299 a team which includes lunch and a steak dinner as well as tax receipt. It is a fun family day on the banks of the Credit River with over 30 teams from local businesses.
The always generous and big supporter of LCCT, Paul Hainer of Insuranceland surprised LCCT with $1000. These funds will be going to Jim Tovey Kids to Camp for 2019!
