This Mother’s Day, The Fresh Air Fund recognizes the many remarkable women in Northern New Jersey that take on the role of “Fresh Air mom” and open their hearts and homes to children from New York City’s low-income communities through The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Towns Program.

The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. Fresh Air children are boys and girls, from seven to 18 years old, who live in New York City. Children who are reinvited by host families may continue with The Fresh Air Fund through age 18 and can enjoy extended trips. There is no such thing as a “typical” host family. The Fund looks for host families who are excited to share the simple joys of summer with a New York City child.

“For us, Fresh Air Fund is a highlight of our year and we have a special bond with Adriana and I know other families will fall in love with the program, just like we did, if they volunteer,” said Kerry Ring, Fresh Air Fund host mom.

To learn more about hosting a Fresh Air child this summer, please contact Lorraine Tully at 862-354-1906 or visit www.freshair.org.
