Does your family have room in your home, and in your hearts, to help make a difference in a child's life? The Fresh Air Fund, an amazing organization that provides inner-city children with free, "fresh air" summer vacations, is in need of host families for 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.
Here's a description of the program from the group's website:
"Every year, The Fresh Air Fund gives thousands of inner-city children the priceless gift of fun – and opens the door to a lifetime of opportunities.
Whether its a two-week trip to the country to visit a volunteer host family, or a fun-filled and educational stay at one of our camps, our programs make for unforgettable memories – and open a world of new friendships and fresh possibilities."
