Many of Frontier’s employees in the Fort Wayne area have an ongoing relationship with Community Harvest. Throughout the year, several dozen Frontier team members volunteer with Community Harvest to distribute food to hungry families and the elderly.
To help the hungry during the holiday season, Frontier’s 1,050 Fort Wayne area employees launched a special food drive. In just a few short days they collected approximately 2,500 pounds of canned and boxed food, prepared meats, pasta and other items.
On Monday, November 25 at 2:00 P.M. a truck from Community Harvest Food Bank will arrive at a loading dock at the rear of Frontier’s regional headquarters building at 8001 West Jefferson Blvd. You’re invited to be there as the donated food is loaded and heads to the food bank for distribution. Luke Stroh, Frontier’s residential call center director, will be available for interviews.
The recent reductions in food stamp benefits combined with a tight job market has increased demand at the area’s food banks dramatically. The need increases during the holiday season as families gather and a portion of household income is devoted to gifts and travel.
