The Countdown to Summer 2010 is on and The Fresh Air Fund is in need of host families. If you or someone you know is able to host, please sign up now.
In 2009, The Fresh Air Fund’s Volunteer Host Family program, called Friendly Town, gave close to 5,000 New York City boys and girls, ages six to 18, free summer experiences in the country and the suburbs. Volunteer host families shared their friendship and homes FOR up to two weeks or more in 13 Northeastern states from Virginia to Maine and Canada.
You can read more on the Fresh Air Fund and how to participate on their website. They are looking for hosts for the summer of 2010. They rely on donations to provide memorable summers to NYC children. Fellow bloggers and facebook or twitter users can download buttons and banners and embed video’s and multimedia elements.
