The Fresh Air Fund Recognizes Volunteer Week
Each year through The Fresh Air Fund, thousands of volunteer host families in 13 states and Canada provide free summer vacations to children from low-income neighborhoods of New York City. During National Volunteer Week - April 21st through 27th - government leaders and civic organizations across the nation commemorate volunteerism and the volunteer efforts of thousands of Americans. In the spirit of National Volunteer Week, we would like to thank the Fresh Air volunteer leaders and host families in your community, who deserve recognition for their commitment and dedication to Fresh Air children.
