IEM Scarborough-Lapsley is part of a non-profit organization. Not only do these boys learn and develop their basketball skills through practice and training, but in being part of this basketball team, they have also learned the value of hard work, commitment, and perseverance. They have learned how to be flexible, communicate and how to listen. The boys recognize that playing basketball for IEM-Scarborough-Lapsley is a privilege and are very appreciative of this opportunity. They want to show the community what the game of basketball has given them, so they are volunteering their time in the new year to a Toronto-based food bank. With the upcoming holiday season, the boys and their families are also joining their efforts and collecting new, unwrapped toys to donate to Salvation Army's Toy Mountain 2017 Drive that is aimed at helping to make Christmas special for boys and girls in need.
