This Winter, The Fresh Air Fund is Thinking Sunshine!

Celebrate The Fresh Air Fund's 137th Summer

Fresh Air summers are filled with children running barefoot through the grass, gazing at star-filled skies or swimming for the first time. Join host families in and around the Rochester area for our 137th summer and open your heart and home to a Fresh Air child! Each summer, over 4,000 inner-city children visit suburban, rural and small town communities across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada through The Fresh Air Fund's Volunteer Host Family Program.

"The Fresh Air Fund enriches everybody's lives; you don't have to entertain the child, just let him or her be a part of your life," says Nikki, a Fresh Air host.

The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Fresh Air children are boys and girls, from six to 18 years old, who live in New York City. Children on first-time visits are six to 12 years old and stay for one or two weeks. Children who are reinvited by host families may continue with The Fresh Air Fund through age 18 and can enjoy extended trips. Over 65 percent of all children are reinvited to stay with their host families, year after year.

For more information on hosting a Fresh Air child this summer, please contact Joanne Wales-Smith at 585-334-4272 or The Fresh Air Fund at 800-367-0003. You can also visit The Fresh Air Fund online at www.freshair.org.
