Frontier Property Management

hosting supply drive

After reaching out to area organizations, Frontier Property Management is giving back to tenants and the community through a shelter supply drive. The Manhattan Emergency Shelter (MESI) provided a list of most needed items at this time. Frontier is offering free rent in January to one lucky lease. Tenants need to donate at minimum one item to the shelter supply drive to be entered to win January rent. Frontier created a point system for tenants based on the expense of the items. Each point is one entry into a drawing for January rent.

The program launched Dec 7 and runs through Dec 30. Three days into accepting donations, Frontier had already collected a total of 58 items for MESI.

Frontier will donate fleece blankets to MESI with a plan to make them Dec. 19. The goal is to make 20 blankets.
