Fresh Air Fund Summer 2011
Thanks to host families who open up their homes for a few weeks each summer, children growing up in New York City’s toughest neighborhoods have experienced the joys of Fresh Air experiences.
Although you are giving a so much to a child, what you give to yourself and your family is priceless. Giving is about feeling good and when you pay it forward, it does come back to you.
Friendly Town host families are volunteers who live in the suburbs or small town communities. Host families range in size, ethnicity and background, but share the desire to open their hearts and homes to give city children an experience they will never forget. Hosts say the Fresh Air experience is as enriching for their own families, as it is for the inner-city children.
There are no financial requirements for hosting a child. Volunteers may request the age-group and gender of the Fresh Air youngster they would like to host.
Stories about real Fresh Air host families and their New York City visitors are just a click away!
