The Fresh Air Fund is seeking new volunteer families to participate in their Friendly Towns program this summer. By hosting a child from the city for just one week, you can make a profound impact on their life while also experiencing the joys of summer through their eyes. Children ages 8 to 14 are eager to spend time outdoors, explore new environments, and make memories that will last a lifetime. Becoming a host family for The Fresh Air Fund is an excellent opportunity to provide a unique experience for a child in need. Consider joining their cause and opening your home to one of these incredible children.

Volunteering as a host family in Chester County, Pennsylvania not only expands opportunities for New York City children living in underserved communities but also creates lifelong connections, gains new perspectives and makes memories that will last a lifetime. Lisa Gitelson, The Fund’s Chief Executive Officer, encourages families to open their homes and hearts to these children, providing them with a chance to learn, grow and thrive during the summer and beyond.

A Fresh Air visit is an exciting time for the children as it allows them to experience new adventures like riding bicycles, swimming, hiking, catching fireflies, and gazing at the stars. Volunteer families live in small towns, suburban areas, and rural communities along the East Coast, making it a diverse experience for both the children and the host family. So, come join in the fun and make a difference in a child’s life today!
