Open your hearts and home - Host a Fresh Air Child

Volunteers you are our HEROES!

The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children since 1877. This summer, The Fresh Air Fund needs more host families to carry on its great summertime tradition of sharing the joys of suburban and small town life with youngsters from New York City - picking berries straight from the vine, tasting
honeysuckle for the first time, or walking barefoot through a grassy meadow. For
more information on how you can volunteer this summer, please contact Elaine DeVost at 607-563-7156/ or visit
Volunteer Appreciation Week is April 19th - April 25th. Hats off to you!

Leatherstocking dates to host are 07/03 - 07/17; 08/03-08/13; 08/17-08/24 - we need volunteers to host and to help spread the word!
