Fresh Air Fund looking families to host kids this summer

THE FRESH AIR FUND, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Nearly 10,000 New York City children enjoy free Fresh Air Fund programs annually. HOST A CHILD
Thanks to host families who open up their homes for one or two weeks each summer, children growing up in New York City’s toughest neighborhoods have experienced the joys of Fresh Air vacations.

More than 65% of all children are reinvited to stay with their host family, year after year.

There is no such thing as a “typical” host family. If you have room in your home – and your heart – to host a child, you could be one too. Fresh Air Fund Children are boys and girls, six to 12 years old, who reside in low-income communities in New York City and are eager to experience the simple pleasures of life outside the city. More information about hosting a child or donation is available at http://freshairfund-newsrelease.com/.
