While I’m on what I hope is the road to recovery from whatever it is that ails me, I figured I would pass along something important to everyone out there.
I’ve mentioned this before, but it’s worth mentioning again. The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, that has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million children from low-income communities, is looking for some host families this summer. Host families are volunteers who open their hearts and home to a child from the city to give a fresh air experience that disadvantaged children never forget.
The areas where host families are needed include New England, New York state, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and Southern Ontario. Just something to keep in mind if you’re thinking about doing something charitable this summer.
It’s a great opertunity to give a child a fun summer that he or she might not have otherwise. You can also donate to the Fresh Air Fund if you like.
