This summer, volunteer for The Fresh Air Fund and host a NYC inner-city child ages 6-12. You will join thousands of volunteer host families throughout 13 Northeastern states and Canada as they open their hearts and homes to New York City children from low-income communities through The Fund’s Friendly Town program. The Friendly Town program allows youngsters from New York City to enjoy new experiences like riding a bike, swimming in a lake and making new friends. The children will arrive in this area on July 20 for a 1 week trip.
Our Fresh Air child loves to be able to walk the dog at night while looking at the stars and water the flowers with a garden hose – things she can’t do at home in the city. We’re so happy we can share these wonderful experiences with her! Imagine summertime without swimming in a pool, playing in the backyard or roasting marshmallows. Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has provided more than 1.7 million inner-city children with the opportunity to enjoy these simple pleasures.
