CHANTILLY, Va. — September 1, 2022 — Associa branches Community Management Corporation Select Community Services (SCS) recently participated in 24 community safety events throughout Maryland and Virginia as part of the 2022 National Night Out (NNO). CMC and SCS joined law enforcement, fire departments, and other first responders to promote neighborhood solidarity, resident safety, and police-community partnerships. Hundreds of residents attended events that included bounce houses, food trucks, live music, and fireworks. Associa's puppy dog mascot, Scout, also helped children learn about safety awareness.
As the community management industry’s sole national sponsor of NNO, Associa CMC and SCS work closely with their respective community partners through Associa Supports Kids (ASK), a community outreach program, to educate parents and children on the importance of neighborhood safety. Tens of thousands of ASK giveaway items are provided annually to NNO event attendees who attend both Associa-managed and non-Associa-managed community safety events.
NNO takes place on the first Tuesday in August throughout all 50 U.S. states, territories, and military bases worldwide. Texas and other selected regions celebrate the first Tuesday in October for weather-related reasons. On October 4, Associa-managed communities will sponsor 36 NNO events as part of Texas’ NNO. The program’s goal is to promote neighborhood camaraderie and inclusiveness to help make them safer, more caring places to live.
“It really is a privilege for our team members to participate in so many National Night Out events year in and year out,” said Darrin Cassidy, CMCA®, AMS®, PCAM®, Select Community Services branch vice president. “Our goal is to meet the needs of our community partners and maximize their quality of living. This program is extremely effective in helping us meet those objectives.”
