Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities
Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities needs to be able to communicate with residents about important information or emergency updates. To do this, residents must ensure FLFHC has up to date information on file.
Keeping FLFHC aware of the number of household members can directly affect the safety of family. In an emergency, first responders need to know exactly how many members to search for in a home.
Do you have a new baby? Have family members moved out? Have you gained a pet or one no longer is living with you? Residents who have had changes to their contact information or family composition — including pets — are asked to visit the FLFHC office at 220 Hancock Ave. or call (913) 682-6300 to have the information updated.
KC Mission donations
FLFHC has partnered with the City Thrift/City Union Mission Donation Center in Kansas City. The second Saturday of each month, items to be donated to the mission can be placed at curbside before 10 a.m. For each donation, the mission will give a voucher for tax credit that can be written off income taxes.
The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items but not mattresses. Separate any bulk trash from donations and place clothing and shoes inside plastic bags marked for mission donation. Anything left on the curb Monday will be collected as bulk trash and not a donation.
Fort Leavenworth residents, don’t forget your Valentine and stop by the FLFHC office after 9 a.m. Feb. 14 to pick up a treat for your sweetie while supplies last.
FLFHC offices and the Self-Help Store will be closed Feb. 17 in observance of Presidents Day. Normal business hours will resume Feb. 18. To report a maintenance emergency or submit a work order when the offices are closed, call the 24-hour maintenance line at (913) 651-3838.
Have a child with a birthday in February? Come by the Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities office at 220 Hancock Ave. to enter him or her into the monthly birthday drawing. All submissions must be received in the FLFHC office by Feb. 21.
Coloring contest Children’s coloring contest sheets are available online at www.ftleavenworthfamilyhousing.com and at the FLFHC office at 220 Hancock Ave. Entries must be received by Feb. 21. Contest winners will receive a prize and have their artwork published in the FLFHC newsletter.
Every degree a home’s thermostat is turned down can take about 2-3 percent off the energy bill. Lowering thermostat five degrees at night and 10 degrees during the day when everyone is out could cut as much as 20 percent from heating costs.
