Help A Child This Summer With Fresh Air

At this time of the year, many children are enjoying the remnants of Summer vacation or Summer camp. Those little ones return with stories of the people, places, and adventures they encounter while they were away. But not all children are as lucky. Without help from other compassionate families they may never get the chance to get away, expand their minds or see things outside their usual day-to-day existence. If you've ever wondered what you can do to help children- besides your own- becoming a Fresh Air host could give you the chance to make a big impact in a short amount of time. The Fresh Air fund is looking for families to open their homes for two weeks THIS SUMMER to a child in the program.

Just last year, the Fresh Air Fund's Volunteer Host Family program gave Summer vacations to nearly 5,000 New York City boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 18. The group was able to accomplish this feat for one reason: Volunteer families in 13 Northeastern states and Canada were generous enough to share their experiences in the country and the suburbs.
