These 2020 Scholarship recipients received a total of more than $137,000.


The Michaels Organization Educational Foundation has helped thousands of resident scholars achieve their dreams of higher education since Michael Levitt became the first affordable housing owner in the country to create a scholarship fund for residents. Investing in the people who live in Michaels Organization communities is an essential part of creating communities that lift lives.


Mission donations
The City Union Mission Christian Life Center truck is now parked across the Community Management Office weekdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. where residents can drop items off or arrange curbside pick-up.


Normal second Saturday curbside donation will continue July 11. The second Saturday of each month, place items for donation curbside before 10 a.m. for collection between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. The mission will issue a tax voucher for accepted donations.


The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items, but not appliances, mattresses, cribs or carseats. 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.


Bulk trash
One of the many services available to Fort Leavenworth residents is the free curbside bulk item pickup every Monday. Bulk items are generally up to a two-man carry and weigh up to 150 pounds. Items that cannot be disposed of as bulk items include any items that contain Freon, such as a deep freezer or refrigerator, and liquid solvents such as paints, motor oil and antifreeze.


Moving boxes can be recycled by dropping them off at the recycling yard on West Warehouse Road near the horse stables. Many types of plastic, metal and glass containers can also be recycled there.


Utilities tip
Computers should be shut off when not in use. If unattended computers must be left on, their monitors should be shut off. According to some studies, computers account for approximately 3 percent of all energy consumption in the United States.
