Loving Host Families for NY Citie's Children Needed

The Fresh Air Fund asked me a year ago to publish their appeal that they are looking for the families that can invite children to stay with them in summer. Now, I received a mail with the request to publish this notice (I copy from the site The Fresh Air Fund

In 2010, 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 up to two weeks or more in 13 Northeastern states from Virginia to Maine and Canada.

Thanks to host families who open up their homes for a few weeks each summer, children growing up in New York City’s toughest neighborhoods have experienced the joys of Fresh Air experiences.

More than 65% of all children are reinvited to stay with their host family, year after year.

Today the Fund thinks just about the coming summer and invites the families from these zones to partecipate on their program and host children in their houses. This is the map of the zones they need to cover.

 If you or someone you know is able to host, please sign up now.
Please, pass the notice to your friends.
