National Night Out was held throughout the state of Texas on October 6, 2015. This is the 31st annual night out held since its inception. National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie. Many communities hold these events at neighborhood parks, resident back yards, street parties, and many other creative ways. At these events police, fire departments, non-profits, residents, churches, schools, and many other groups come together to get to know each other, and encourage they work together to cut down on crime. Police cars, fire trucks, moon walks, booths, clowns, give a ways, and other fun items are commonly seen at National Night Out events.
Air Alliance Houston was invited to participate in a couple of National Night Out events throughout the Houston area. We participated in the neighborhoods of Galena Park, Pleasantville, South Park, and Magnolia Park. We had a booth at each community event, and we gave out information about our organization, free AAH bags, and 311 magnets. We had hundreds of residents that came through our booths. These neighborhoods we participated with are very important to us as we continue to work with them on various ongoing and past projects. We want to thank our community partners for inviting us out to their neighborhoods. We look forward to continue to be active in these neighborhoods, and look forward to being at the next National Night Out.
