Community Builder Supports Ontario Frontline Workers in the Fight against COVID-19

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.

An Ontario-based community builder, Flato Developments has been, since the start of the pandemic, pushing forward in helping alleviate the spread of the novel coronavirus. The builder has purchased protective equipment and critical supplies desperately needed and donated it to those on the frontlines.

According to a Flato Developments release, “Over the course of the past few weeks, the company has been continuously supporting the communities where Flato builds and operates. The company has donated nearly over 17,000 surgical masks and more than 2,500 KN95 masks to hospitals, senior care homes and local communities throughout Southern Ontario. Separately, Flato purchased and coordinated delivery of more than 3,000 tubes of hand sanitizers 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,” said Shakir Rehmatullah, President and Founder of Flato Developments. “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.”
