CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, provides free summer experiences to New York City children from low-income communities through the fund's Volunteer Host Family Program. Host families are sought for these children.
Each summer, more than 4,000 children visit volunteer host families in rural, suburban and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada. Fresh Air children are given the opportunity to experience a world outside of New York City full of meadows to run in, streams to fish in and lakes to swim in.
To learn more about hosting a Fresh Air child this summer, contact Rachel Eubank at 304-282-6010 or The Fresh Air Fund at 1-800-367-0003. Visit The Fresh Air Fund online at http://www.freshair.org.
