Share the Good Will: Fresh Air Fund Looking for Host Families

When I was a small child, many of my friends went away for the summer through the Fresh Air Fund program. My mother who was extremely over protective never let me go away to any sort of summer camp but I remember being very envious of my friends who not only went away for the summer somewhere “far away” but also received letters and gifts throughout the year from their “family.”

If you are in a position to host an inner city child for a couple of weeks I think this is a great program and if you would like to sign up your child, you can find out more at Freshair.org

The “Fresh Air Fund has been around since 1877. They help children from the age of 6-12 years old who live in NYC low income households have a two week experience with a host family or get sent to one of their camps. There is still time to host a child and they are looking for host families in the following states:

Connecticut
Delaware
Massachusetts
Maine
New Hampshire
New Jersey
New York
Ontario
Pennsylvania
Rhode Island
Virginia
Vermont”
