Alternative Title

Jerry and Polly Applebee Outside of Restore Orlando


Orlando (Fla.)


Jerry Applebee and Polly Applebee, the founders of the after-school program of Restore Orlando, in 1996. Jerry is second from the left and Polly and second from the right.

Created in 1994, the program organized outings such as horseback riding and helicopter rides. The Applebees were affiliated with the Church of the Nazarene in the Parramore neighborhood of Downtown Orlando, Florida. Dedra Jenkins fought to have a basketball court built for the older children at Kaley Square Park across the street. Originally, owners of the church and park did not want a court because they feared it would be a place where drug dealers would congregate.

This photograph, taken by an unknown volunteer at the program, was originally discarded, along with other similar photographs, and then found by a local resident near the Emmanuel Fellowship and Worship Center, which is located at the former site of Restore Orlando. The collection was given to the contributor, Dedra Jenkins.
