Gaston Edwards Park 1236 N.Orange Ave, Orlando,florida 32804bring a blanket, lay it out, chill with friends,family,locals, play board games, watch the sun set, leave your blanket and/or goods for others, or take a load of blankets home with you to help us as we deliver them to those brothers and sisters on the streets that are in unfortunate situations., Those on the streets yearly appreciate the simple care of others , by this gift of a warm blanket through the few cold weeks we have. Baby Blankets and thinner blankets are donated to Animal Rescue locations. Giving is not hard. This is not related to any organization, group, city or government agency. We believe that giving is easy. Many thanks to all of Apartment E’s friends and associates that have inspired me (Frankie), and we at Apartment E are grateful to you all that have spread the word of this annual “Hang-out”. My heart has been fueled in knowing that Thanksgiving is about Giving…no man is an island. We all need each other at times, and this is a great event to teach your children about “giving” instead of just “Receiving” around the Holidays. Happy Thanksgiving season all I am grateful for your undying help and excitment for this grassroots-original Orlando event , love, Frankie
