Fresh Air Fund
The Fresh Air Fund has contacted me a couple of times about their organization and I would love for you all to take a look at it! Here is some info in their own words:
THE FRESH AIR FUND, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Nearly 10,000 New York City children enjoy free Fresh Air Fund programs annually. In 2008, close to 5,000 children visited volunteer host families in suburbs and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada. 3,000 children also attended five Fresh Air camps on a 2,300-acre site in Fishkill, New York. The Fund’s year-round camping program serves an additional 2,000 young people each year.
How awesome to enable an underprivileged child from the inner city to enjoy time away! This an organization that has been around for many years and has a passion for brightening the lives of many kids!
