Flato supports King Food Bank in difficult times

·1 min read

A local developer has stepped up to the plate, and boosted the efforts of the King Township Food Bank.

Flato Developments is proud to be an annual sponsor of the King Township Food Bank.

They look forward to not just building homes but building and supporting the communities they build in.

“This is part of our corporate mission, not just building homes but building the communities we develop. Supporting our local food banks is the right and moral thing to do any time we can. It would be a shame for anyone to go to bed hungry in a rich country like Canada,” said Shakir Rehmatullah, president of Flato Developments.

And indeed, Flato Developments and the Rehmatullah Family have a long history of philanthropy that spans decades from supporting hospitals. In fact, Mr. Rehmatullah has a cancer wing named after him at the Markham/Stouffville Hospital). The company has supported homeless shelters, food banks, animal shelters and everything in between.

“Our goal in community building is that everyone, rich or poor feel part of the community and enjoy where they live,” Rehmatullah added.

King Township Food Bank welcomes Flato Developments as the newest Annual Diamond Sponsor. The KTFB is grateful that Flato recognizes the need in King and is stepping up to help this totally volunteer organization fight hunger with their ongoing commitment to support KTFB every year.
