Fresh Air Kids Coming To Allegany County

June 23rd, 2016 by WCBC Radio

The Western Maryland Committee will be welcoming 21 New York City children as they arrive in Frostburg on 6/30/2016. Volunteer host families share their summers for up to two weeks with Fresh Air children, ages seven to 18, who leave behind the city streets to run barefoot in the grass or see the stars at night. Some children are leaving home for the first time, while others are returning to visit the same host families for consecutive summers.

The Fresh Air Fund is an independent, not-for-profit agency that has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Each summer, close to 4,000 children visit volunteer host families in rural, suburban and small town communities along the East Coast from North Carolina to Maine and Southern Canada through The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Towns Program.
