ROWLETT, Texas, Oct. 5, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- National Night Out (NNO) was celebrated across the Lone Star State on October 4 and Associa took part in 118 events in Texas. For the fifth year running, Associa, the industry's leading community management company, has been a national sponsor for the largest crime and drug awareness event in the country and this year assisted in 196 nationwide events (all other states marked the occasion on August 2.)
Across all 50 states, NNO celebrates and promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our communities safer, better places to live. Through the Associa Supports Kids program, the company was represented at nearly 200 events nationwide, within Associa and non-Associa managed communities, encouraging stronger relationships among neighbors, communities and local law enforcement.
"This is, by far, the most events we have ever participated in, due in part to an increase in the number of police departments partnering with the neighborhoods 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 NNO is a perfect avenue for us to help build better relationships within neighborhoods and with local law enforcement."
As a fifth year sponsor of National Night Out, Associa sent its loveable, kid-friendly mascot Scout to a number of locations. Hundreds of Associa employees personally volunteered by handing out items such as ChildPrint ID kits, Scout's Safety-Tips coloring books, inspirational wrist bands and other Associa Supports Kids items.
