LIVINGSTON, NJ — For the ninth year, Saint Barnabas Medical Center has made a donation to support Livingston’s National Night Out, which is scheduled for Aug. 1 at the Memorial Oval. 

The national event is designed to strengthen neighborhoods though police-community partnerships. According to the Livingston Police Department, the goal is to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, build support and participation in local anti-crime programs and, most importantly, represents the kind of spirit, energy and determination that is helping to make many neighborhoods safer places to live. It is also intended as an opportunity for neighbors to get to know each other even better.

This event promotes various crime-prevention programs that are active in Livingston including neighborhood watch groups, residential and business security surveys, bicycle registration and crime-prevention tips.

The event is supported by donations from Bernheim-Apter-Kreitzman, Investors Bank, Best Provisions, Livingston Family Orthodontics, Bottle King, Crystal Plaza, Livingston Mall and Step It Up Events.

A free raffle will allow participants to enter to win prizes donated by Bee Bee Designs, Livingston Car Wash, Love Letters, Olive Garden and others.
