The Park Record (12/31/15) McNaughton, Angeliqu
Residents of Newark Studios in Park City, Utah an NAA member received a special holiday treat last month: An anonymous donor paid for Januarys rent for all 38 apartment homes in the affordable-housing community.
Rent varies from $527 to $709 per month for each apartment home, for a total of about $25,000. The donation meant that many residents were able to enjoy their holidays without worrying about how it may affect their ability to pay rent.
News about the donation was communicated through notices on residents doors. The leasing office began receiving calls about 30 minutes after the notices were distributed inquiring about the validity of the free month of rent and whom they could thank for the donation. The donor wished to remain anonymous, however, and simply contacted the leasing office to determine how much rent costs for the entire community and when it needed to be paid.
