National Association of Town Watch (NATW) is a national organization to bring communities together by promoting crime prevention in the community and across the nation. National Night Out (NNO) is one of the major campaigns of the organization. Over 16,000 communities host an event to promote the police to community partnership. The events can be block parties, festivals, BBQ or many other various activities. The event is the held on the first Tuesday of August annually.
Central Falls Police Department and Central Falls Prevention Coalition host a block party with the help of many sponsors; Aramark being one of them. The goal of the event is to build a relationship between the community and the police department. The festival included fun activities such as Sumo Wrestlers, A Dunk Tank, as well as booths with representatives from organizations from around the community for residents to view the resources available. The event was held at Jenks Park on the Broad Street Side.
Aramark collaborated with the Central Falls Park and Rec department to cleanup Jenks Park, the morning of the event, to have it ready for the evening festivities. Multiple managers from around the state volunteered their time to assist with the process. During the evening Aramark hosted the BBQ for the event which included donating: hamburgers, hot dogs, watermelon, chips, lemonade, and cookies. We hope to be able to be part of this important event for many years to come.
