Region – The Fresh Air Fund will celebrate its 137th summer of serving NYC children this year. 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. Fresh Air children experience simple pleasures like running barefoot through the grass, gazing at star-filled skies, and creating memories that last a lifetime.

Through the eyes of Fresh Air children, families often rediscover the beauty of their own communities.? The bus will be arriving July 19 for a one-week, 10-day, or two-week visit.

For more information on how you can sign up to become a volunteer host this summer, contact Theresa Kane at 978-618-0676 or Theresa.kane@friendlytown.org, or The Fresh Air Fund at 800-367-0003. Additionally, you can find more information online at www.freshair.org.
