Dallas, TX – September 11, 2018 - Associa, the industry’s largest community management company, participated in 158 National Night Out (NNO) events to help promote community safety, neighborhood camaraderie, and crime prevention.
NNO is an annual community-building movement that encourages law enforcement and community partnerships on the first Tuesday in August, with Texas celebrating on the first Tuesday in October. Neighborhoods came together to show support and take a symbolic stand against crime in their communities. The events brought together homeowners, volunteers, and first responders to help raise awareness and enhance the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement. Associa employees, volunteers, and mascot Scout joined Associa Supports Kids (ASK) and attended the events that took place throughout Associa and non-Associa managed communities.
Homeside Properties’ managed community, Keystone Gates Townhomes Association, located in Lithonia, GA, hosted more than 40 homeowners, law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMTs, City Councilmen, and the Dekalb County School Board. The event honored first responders and allowed neighbors to mix and mingle while learning about community safety.
The Associa Community Management Corporation and Select Community Services’ team participated in 29 local NNO events in Maryland, Virginia, and the DC area. The events included face painting, moon bounces, rock painting, deejays, and dancing. Communities invited local law enforcement to interact with homeowners and community representatives to build strong relationships and gain knowledge about community safety. The most popular guest appearances included McGruff the Crime Dog, and Associa’s mascot, Scout.
“This year’s NNO events were a huge success and we had more communities participate than ever before,” stated Annette Ratliff, Associa community liaison and director of corporate citizenship. “We would like to thank everyone who volunteered and give a special thanks to our branch and community representatives for showing such stellar leadership. We look forward to including even more communities next year.”
