Fresh Air Fund Day is March 20th 2013
This summer share the beauty of the Hamilton Wenham community with a deserving child: Volunteer for The Fresh Air Fund and host an inner-city child from New York City. You will join thousands of volunteer host families throughout 13 Northeastern states and Canada who open their hearts and homes to New York City children from low-income communities through The Fund’s Friendly Town program. The Friendly Town program allows youngsters from New York City to enjoy new experiences like riding a bike, swimming in a lake and making new friends.
“Hosting our Fresh Air child the past three summers has given my children the opportunity to appreciate the things they take for granted – activities like swimming and barbequing are novelties to our Fresh Air friend,” says one Fresh Air host parent. Imagine summertime without swimming in a pool, playing in the backyard or gazing at the stars. Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has provided more than 1.7 million inner-city children with the opportunity to enjoy these simple pleasures.
