DALLAS, Texas – February 17, 2017 – Associa, the industry’s largest community management firm, distributed a record-breaking $668,000 to relief efforts in 2016 and begins this year by giving $16,500 in January to families who experienced a crisis at home.
The funds were donated on behalf of Associa Cares, an organization set up to benefit families across the country that are in need of assistance following a catastrophe at home such as a flood, fire or tornado. Associa Cares dollars are contributed by employees and fundraising events. It relies on volunteers from national and local committees to help identify people in both Associa and non-Associa managed communities affected by tragedies.
Below is a list of the Associa companies that helped families in need in their respective areas of the country in January:
“After such a remarkable 2016, it’s good to see that the generosity of Associa employees and our willingness to help others is a continuing effort into the new year,” says Associa Cares President Andrew Fortin. “Many of the homeowners we assisted in January do not live within an Associa-managed communities and it’s great to see the far-reaching extent of the warm hearts at Associa.”
