Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities

Spring is on its way and Fort Leavenworth Frontier Heritage Communities would like to remind residents to be proactive about general springtime cleaning and the general maintenance upkeep of your home. Take this opportunity to get rid of the old and bring in the new.

FLFHC has partnered with the City Union Mission Christian Life Center. The second Saturday of each month, items to be donated to the mission should be placed curbside by 10 a.m. For each donation, the mission will give a voucher for tax credit that can be written off income taxes. The next pick up is March 13.

The mission accepts clothing, furniture and other household items but not 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.

Utilities tip
Turn lights off when not in use, even for short periods of time. Turning lights off and on uses less energy than if they are left on all the time.
