The Frank Flaman Foundation has donated $50,000 to E4C’s School Lunch Program, which provides hot lunches in Edmonton’s inner city schools.
The program supplies nearly 2,300 lunches to students each day and ensures children get a third of their daily nutritional requirements. It costs $20 to feed one child for one week. Families are asked to contribute whatever they can through an anonymous double-envelope system but children receive a meal regardless of payment.
This annual event is the main fundraiser for the Frank Flaman Foundation, the charity created by Flaman Group of Company’s founder and owner Frank. The Foundation is funded by Frank’s share of the profits from the Flaman Group, and by private donations. Along with being a savvy businessman, Frank has always been a respected philanthropist, and his foundation gives millions of dollars to local and international charities each year.
One year after a devastating earthquake struck the capital of Haiti, Frank Flaman has once again generously given half a million dollars to support the relief effort.
In a simple presentation on Jan. 12 at Flaman Sales in Nisku, Flaman donated $250,000 to the Salvation Army and $250,000 to Oxfam. These funds are in addition to the $500,000 he donated to the same charities shortly after the earthquake hit in 2010 through the Frank Flaman Foundation.
