Fresh Air Fund thanks volunteers for another successful summerTo the editor:

This year, 80 New York City children found out once again just how special summer is in Central Massachusetts. Fresh Air Fund hosts, volunteers and local supporters dedicated their time and efforts to help these inner-city youngsters experience simple summertime pleasures, including afternoons of swimming, fishing at sunset and roasting s'sores over a campfire.

None of this would be possible without Kathyrn Younis, your local Fresh Air Fund volunteer leader, who works throughout the year to make sure host families and children have the opportunity to enjoy memorable summertime experiences together. I invite you to join Kathyrn Younis and the local Fresh Air Fund committee to help spread the word about the wonderful opportunity of hosting next summer.

On behalf of all of us at The Fresh Air Fund, including the thousands of children who benefit from Fresh Air programs, I would also like to thank you for the terrific exposure you gave The Fresh Air Fund in the Community Advocate this year by featuring our Volunteer Host Family Program in your community. The coverage supports the efforts of Kathyrn Younis and our local volunteer leaders to recruit more dedicated host families who open their homes to New York City children for up to two weeks during the summer. By sharing wonderful summer memories with your readers, you have helped to spread the word to other potential supporters, who keep our programs flourishing in your area.

The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to over 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. For more information on how you can help to continue this wonderful tradition of volunteering, please call Kathyrn Younis at 1-508-435-5010 or visit
