The Circle of Friends to host free “Friendsgiving” Block Celebration


By Nicholas Bique

The Circle of Friends will be hosting a free community event “FRIENDSGIVING” on Saturday, November 19th from 11AM-4PM all along E Stuart Ave., Lake Wales!

The first 25 attendees will receive a free swag bag. The first 200 people will receive a free Thanksgiving meal box complete with a slice of pie. Teaming up with Removing the Barriers, another local disabilities nonprofit, Circle of Friends is also working with the Care Center, local churches, and vendors to offer music, games, activities, and food.

“We thought this would be a great way to show our gratitude to the entire community alongside our Intellectual and Developmentally Disabled (IDD) families, caretakers, volunteers, supporters, and friends,” said Crystal Brewer-Higbee, President of the Circle of Friends. The Circle of Friends is a disabilities nonprofit. Learn more about them: www.circleoffriendsministry.com
