Fresh Air Kids Coming To Frostburg

July 11th, 2018 by WCBC Radio

The Western Maryland Committee will be welcoming 12 New York City children as they arrive in Frostburg on 7/18/2018. Volunteer host families share their summers for one week or more with Fresh Air children, ages seven to 18. A Fresh Air summer means running barefoot in the backyard, riding bikes down country roads, learning to swim, catching fireflies, building sandcastles on the beach, making new friends, and having a lot of fun.  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, thousands of children visit volunteer host families in rural, suburban and small town communities along the East Coast and Southern Canada through The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Towns Program.
