Hello friends! Sara from the Fresh Air Fund tells me that there are still opportunities to host children who live in the city this summer. The Fresh Air Fund takes children who might otherwise never leave urban life and sends them to the country to live with host families every summer. They’ve been doing this for decades, and it’s a program that I really appreciate. If I could host a child or two, I would. We don’t live far enough east to qualify as hosts.
If you live in the eastern US and are willing to host a child from the city for a few weeks, go to the Fresh Air Fund’s page to learn more and sign up.
