Flaherty & Collins Properties is the latest corporation to make a donation to the Rebuild Highland Park Fund, donating $5,000 to the fund, which was established to re-forest and rebuild Highland Park, following heavy damage during the August 24 tornadoes.
Flaherty & Collins Properties is developing an upscale, mixed-use apartment development across from Kokomo Municipal Stadium, 306 Riverfront District.
“This is an effort that will positively impact the community,” said David Flaherty, CEO of Flaherty & Collins Properties. “We are happy to support this cause and assist in helping to rebuild and re-forest Highland Park.”
So far donations to the Restore Highland Park Fund have exceeded $65,000, including donations from Alcoa Inc. and Solidarity Community Federal Community Credit Union.
“We appreciate our community partners who are willing to help us in our time of need,” said City of Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight. “We know Flaherty & Collins Properties is committed to our city, and this is a perfect example.”
Highland Park will be re-forested with 16 different varieties of native, hardwood trees, including Elm, Oak, Sycamore and Black Walnut.
