Fifteen years ago, leaders with several churches in Le Roy came together to create an after-school program for children. That was the start of the Le Roy Christian Community Project. Today, LCCP runs eight programs, including a backpack program, a free weekly community dinner and a caregivers support group.
Yesterday, County Legislator Shelly Stein presented LCCP's board of directors with a proclamation from the county commemorating the group's 15 years of service to the community.
