DALLAS, March 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Associa Cares, the non-profit family assistance organization of Associa, was invited to the North Texas Tollway Authority's (NTTA) monthly board meeting in March to receive a check in the amount of $5,305. The money is to help support families in Garland and Rowlett affected by the deadly tornado on December 26.
"NTTA employees live in the communities around our roads and wanted to help their neighbors who had experienced devastation from the December storms." said NTTA Director John Mahalik.

The staff really took the challenge to heart and went above and beyond for this most worthy cause."
