Host A Fresh Air Child This Summer
The Fresh Air Fund provides an opportunity for as many as 5,000 New York City children from low-income neighborhoods to spend two weeks in and around the Hamptons at the homes of volunteer host families. The fund is currently seeking volunteer families looking to host a child this summer.
There are no financial requirements for hosting a Fresh Air child. Hosts can select the gender and appropriate age of the visitor. First-time visitors are six to 12 years-old, and re-invited youngsters may participate in the Friendly Town program through the age of 16. To learn more about hosting a Fresh Air child this summer, please contact Judy Sloate at 725-4098, or call the Fresh Air Fund at (800) 367-0003.
