2018 Holiday Book Drive

As a member of this community for 90 years, Leslie & Giles Insurance Limited looks for opportunities to contribute to our community. This year, we have partnered with Habitat for Humanity in organising a book-drive for the 2018 holiday season.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-for-profit housing organisation that works to mobilize communities to help working, lower income families build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable homeownership. We’ve chosen to support this cause this holiday season because they uphold values that we believe in too.

As such, our office will be hosting a book-drive to support this organisation's mission. Our office will be accepting lightly used books from November 12 to December 21, 2018.

These donated books will be given a new home through the Habitat for Humanity Restores (second hand stores), with all proceeds going directly to the construction of affordable homes for low-income families. This is not only a great way to help the community but also will prevent perfectly good literature from ending-up in a landfill.

Check-out our Facebook event page for more details.

Play Ball!

Leslie & Giles Insurance Limited sponsored the Scarborough Stingers Under 15 baseball team for the 2018 summer season.

The team had a great summer out in the fresh air doing what they love.  We asked their coach his thoughts on the teams’ season and he shared that: “Overall as a coach I was very pleased on how the players developed and played on the field.”

The Scarborough Stingers baseball club offers an entire program of elite baseball and quality instruction for young players in Scarborough, East Toronto and surrounding communities.

The sponsorship supports the team by helping them have access to quality equipment and coaching, access to playing fields and support their participation in tournaments out of town.

We congratulate the team on a successful season and wish them luck in their future endeavours.
