The Fresh Air Fund is a not-for-profit agency, providing free summer vacations to children in low-income communities. Thanks to host families who open up their homes in the summer, children living in New York City's toughest neighborhoods experience life in the suburbs or small town communities.
Fresh air children are both boys and girls, ages 6 to 18 years old. They stay with host families for either one or two weeks.
These children often come from families lacking the resources to provide summer vacations. Please open up your hearts and homes to provide these children with the opportunity to have a life changing experience come this summer 2011. Please visit freshairfundhost.org for more information on this matter and to sign up to be a host family.
