COVID-19 Initiatives

The pandemic has turned our beloved City of London, our country, and our world upside down.

It has left millions unemployed, tens of thousands of businesses have or about to close their doors, and tens of thousands more are homeless today.

During this time, we at Farhi Holdings have taken it upon ourselves to help reinforce our communities wherever possible. We have donated millions of dollars towards initiatives aiding our front-line workers, our most vulnerable, worthy organizations within our communities and millions more helping our own long-standing tenant base get through this unprecedented hit to our economy.

Giving Back Throughout the Years

We have contributed over $30 million toward philanthropic initiatives over the past 35 years to make a positive impact by helping at-risk youth and support sustainable communities.


Helping At-Risk Youth

At FHC, we believe that every child, regardless of circumstance, deserves to have the opportunity to be a kid. That’s why we work to ensure that at-risk youth have an opportunity to participate in organized sports and community activities that teach them essential life lessons about teamwork and healthy relationships.

FHC is a proud multi-million dollar sponsor of youth athletics programs including the Junior London Knights, the YMCA, and local soccer, hockey, and swim teams – keeping kids active and helping them become team players within their community.


Supporting Sustainable Communities

In our efforts to support sustainable communities in Southwestern Ontario, FHC has been pleased to generously sponsor the following community organizations:

  • The Ivey Heart Institute
  • London Health Sciences Centre
  • Atlosha Native Family Healing Centre
  • The Salvation Army
  • Youth Opportunities Unlimited
  • YMCA (London)
  • The London Children’s Museum
  • The Banting House
  • The Hospice of Windsor and Essex County
  • Pollinative
  • SickKids Foundation
  • Community Outreach
  • Pathways for Children and Youth (Kingston)
  • Arts and Culture (London and Toronto)
  • … and many others!

Sharing Our Success

Farhi Holdings Corporations believes in sharing our success.  We understand the value of social responsibility and strive every day to improve the communities in which we operate.

FHC is actively involved in many philanthropic endeavors, with a focus on assisting our diverse not-for-profit tenant base.  Some work with vulnerable populations, while others are leaders in the cultural sector.

Our annual support for these not-for-profits is now close to $1 million.

In addition, company president Shmuel Farhi is pleased to offer business advice and his personal encouragement to numerous worthwhile causes.

Atlosah Native Family Healing Centre

In 2010, Farhi donated a downtown heritage property to Atlosha Native Family Healing Centre at a cost of $1.3 million. The centre gives First Nations people access to training programs, computers, employment and literacy resources, an elders and youth meeting room, a catering service and community store, in addition to 16 units rented out as affordable housing to men, women and families at risk.

The hundreds of people who come to the Atlohsa Native Family Healing Centre to chat with friends, get a warm meal or to look something up on the Internet, do so through a back door.

Commitment to Downtown Revitalization

FHC believes that downtown is the heart of every community, and that a vibrant downtown is essential for a city’s economic, cultural, and social well-being.

In November 2011, we sold our property at 137 Dundas Street to Fanshawe College, facilitating the first phase of their new downtown campus.

Fanshawe’s Centre for Digital and Performance Arts opened in January 2014, bringing more than 400 students to the heart of downtown London.

A PARTNER FOR THE ARTS – In early 2013, Farhi Holdings Corporation was delighted to support Artfusion in their creation of The Stephen Watson Memorial Mural, which transformed the exterior wall of 197 Dundas Street into London’s largest mural.
