Flato Developments supporting Ontario frontline workers in fight against COVID-19
Flato Developments, an Ontario-based community builder, is pushing forward to help alleviate the spread of the novel virus, by purchasing and donating protective equipment and critical supplies to those on the frontlines.
With the number of COVID-19 cases growing in Ontario, frontline staff at hospitals and senior care homes are faced with the burden of limited medical supplies. Premier Doug Ford has called on residents and businesses of Ontario to help those in need as we face these trying times together, as a community.
The company has been continuously supporting the communities where Flato builds and operates. Flato has donated about 17,000 surgical masks and more than 2,500 KN95 masks to hospitals, senior care homes and local communities throughout southern Ontario. Separately, the company purchased and coordinated delivery of more than 3,000 tubes of hand sanitizer to those in need.
Flato has also committed to supporting local food banks throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, including Shepherds Cupboard Food Bank, Daily Bread Food Bank and The Mississauga Food Bank.
“Our country and province are facing unprecedented shortages of supplies needed to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic,” says Shakir Rehmatullah, president and founder of Flato. “There is a great need, now more than ever, to support our communities that have been impacted by this pandemic. We have heard, loud and clear, the message from premier Ford and want to help the communities where we build and operate in, our local families and neighbours.”

- Markham-Stouffville Hospital
- Town of Stouffville
