Nonprofit to host Autism Awareness Walk Saturday

Hangout One Happy Place to walk in Baldwin park


The Hangout One Happy Place will be walking for autism awareness this Saturday, April 17.

Hangout One Happy Place, a nonprofit organization based in Baldwin, serves as a safe space for special-needs children to socialize and engage in hands-on activities such as arts and crafts, games, karaoke singing and dancing.

The walk, organizers said, aims to give the group’s student a chance to shine. It will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at Baldwin Harbor Town Park, located at 3232 Grand Ave.

The students will play a big part in the walk by selling raffle tickets, making crafts to sell and decorating. The community is invited to join.
