Volunteering with Fresh Air Fund
July 7, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am
Help send off Fresh Air youngsters as they wait to board buses bound for their volunteer host families. Stay for 15 minutes or an hour – we’ll provide the temporary tattoos, cards and games – you provide the fun!
The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, provides free, enriching summer experiences and academic programs for children from underserved New York City neighborhoods. During the summer, students attend five Fresh Air camps in Fishkill, NY or share their summers with volunteer host families across the Northeast and Canada, where they learn about new environments and skills that they can bring back to their communities. When school is in session, Fresh Air students participate in supported school programs at camp and in New York City. We partner with volunteers, corporate groups, and social service and community organizations who help make Fresh Air Fund programs possible. Since 1877, 1.8 million children have participated in Fresh Air experiences, where each day is an exploration of nature and journey of discovery.
