DALLAS, July 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For the fifth year running, Associa, the industry's leading community management company, is a national sponsor for the largest crime and drug awareness event in the country – National Night Out (NNO).
Across all 50 states, NNO celebrates and promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our communities safer, better places to live. This year Associa plans to participate in close to 150 events coast-to-coast on Tuesday, August 2 and in Texas on October 4.
Through the Associa Supports Kids program, the company will be represented at many of the events nationwide, within Associa and non-Associa managed communities, encouraging stronger relationships among neighbors, communities and local law enforcement.
"We want to take this opportunity to remind everyone how important it is for communities to work hand-in-hand with local law enforcement to promote neighborhood awareness. This year we've seen an increase in the number of police departments that have reached out to us for support of their NNO events in efforts to build better relationships in the communities that they are sworn to serve and protect," says Associa Director of Corporate Citizenship Annette Ratliff. "Our employees are dedicated to providing communities with unsurpassed service and that's why NNO is such a perfect avenue for us to help neighborhoods come together for the greater good."
As a fifth year sponsor of National Night Out, Associa will be sending its loveable, kid-friendly mascot Scout to a number of locations. Hundreds of Associa employees will be personally volunteering and handing out items such as ChildPrint ID kits, Scout's Safety-Tips coloring books, inspirational wrist bands and other Associa Supports Kids items.
Associa Supports Kids is a value-added program for Associa community residents, designed to enhance the neighborhood community experience year-round. The program focuses on educating parents and kids about safety and fitness. For more information about safety and sports sponsorships programs, visit www.associasupportskids.org.
