LVRDF Fundraising Picnic - August 4th 2019 * pictures under Photos from Events section below


Dear Members,

This is to congratulate everyone who participated in our annual Lluidas Vale family day Picnic.

Again, this year was a success; we could not ask for a more beautiful day. 

A huge thank you to all the members who donated their time resources, gifts, foods and those who volunteered in any capacity to make it a enjoyable and fun day.

From all reports there was enough food, comradeship, re-acquaintance with long time friends and long lost relatives; at the same time raising some much needed funds to continue with our charity work of helping our beloved Village.

Thanks again and much blessings,


Dr. Isen’s generosity


Thank you again to Dr. Jordie Isen who in his generosity has been able to donate 100 pairs of sandals to LVRDF. Shipping will take place as soon as it’s possible. We are so grateful for Dr. Isen and his contributions.

Ravi celebrates his graduation!


Congrats to Ravi Gray who has graduated this year and is heading to Kellits High School next year. The LVRDF decided to help young Ravi with his graduation ceremony expenses, so he was able to participate in the celebrations. The ceremony took place on Wednesday, 3rd, of July.

President’s Report


We have completed another successful year in our organization. Again, our two major fundraising events were successful, our annual summer Picnic and our annual fall Dance. Both were well attended and supported by members their families and friends.

Some of our accomplishments for 2018

  • Our annual Christmas Treat for the elderly and shut-ins held in December before Christmas was well received.
  • According to the volunteers on the ground, some new hands were on deck again this year, 91 residents were given care packages of food this year. I understand that when the elderly residents were not coming to the school as early as was anticipated, one of the volunteer rode his bike in each lane to remind the residents of the distribution.
  • The fund raising, donations collected from members and well wishers for the Baptist Basic School that was destroyed by fire was successful; we raised over $2000.00. We were able to purchase a Fridge, Stove and Microwave oven for the School. These were shipped to the School with the assistance of “Food for the Poor” organization for which we are so grateful.
  • Through the efforts of our member Dr. Jordie Isen we were able to obtain a quantity of School furniture from the York Region District School Board. A trailer load of the donated school furniture was shipped and delivered to the three Basic Schools and the Primary School. Again many thanks to Food for the Poor organization, without their assistance and guidance this would not have come to fruition.
  •  We sponsored a deserving student to attend Charlie-mount high School. 
  •  We continue to support Herbie; Miss Imo’s Son, he is now resigned to Bed, but still holding onto life with one foot.
  •  We supported the FFP (Food for the Poor) fundraising brunch by way of monetary donation.
  •  We supported the Alliance of Jamaica Alumni Association (AJAA) student awards dinner.
  •  We supported The Mountain Industry organization, by purchasing tickets to their fundraising dance.
  •  We donated an appreciation plaque to Dr. Jordie Isen for his continued support to our organization over the years.

Again, thanks to our hardworking committee members and the support from the many donors, members and friends. The commitment and dedication to giving back to our community has not gone unnoticed.

Our organization will continue to support the Village its schools, community events and most importantly the people who are in need.

As President, It’s a privilege to serve our organization year after year. I remain passionate about our community of Lluidas Vale; it’s a pleasure to work with our dedicated committee members and the general members here in Toronto. It’s obvious to me, that our team is committed in giving back to our community, and through our organization we are doing our part.

Yours respectfully,

Tim Escoffery
