ORANGE PARK, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Community Management Concepts of Jacksonville (CMC-Jax), an Associa company, and Associa Supports Kids (ASK) have partnered with National Night Out (NNO) to create safer communities across the country. On Tuesday, August 5, neighborhoods throughout OakLeaf are invited to celebrate the “31st Annual National Night Out” along with thousands of communities nationwide.
The local crime and drug prevention event will take place at the Jennings Point Condos and Fieldstone/Millstone Apartments community pool at 575 Oakleaf Plantation Parkway from 6:30 – 8 p.m. This is an opportunity for residents to spend the evening outside with neighbors and enjoy free food, drinks, games, pictures with McGruff the Crime Dog and Scout the Associa Supports Kids (ASK) mascot, along with special appearance from local police and fire departments.

“CMC Jacksonville is thrilled to be a part of this spectacular nationwide event,” says CMC-Jax President-CEO Nicholas Lambiase, Jr., CPM, LCAM. “The OakLeaf celebration is sure to be the place to be on August 5 to help support safe and drug-free communities throughout the state and the nation.”
National Project Coordinator Matt Peskin says, “This is a night for America to stand together to promote awareness, safety and neighborhood unity. National Night Out showcases the vital importance of police-community partnerships and citizen involvement in our fight to build a safer nation. On NNO, we invite neighborhoods nationwide to join us in Giving Crime & Drugs A Going Away Party.”
NNO is designed to: (1) Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; (2) Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs; (3) Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and (4) Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
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. At neighborhood events, Scout, the ASK mascot, hands out Safety Tip coloring books, plush Scout toys, rub-on tattoos, and Scout’s own books, like Scout Goes to the Beach, Scout Goes to a Sleepover, and Scout Stays Active and Strong to each child in attendance. Parents receive an ASK safety brochure and a ChildPrint identification kit. For more information on both the Safety and Sports Sponsorships programs, visit www.associasupportskids.org.
