Fresh Air summers are filled with children running barefoot through the grass, gazing at star-filled skies, catching fireflies at night or swimming for the first time. For 138 years, The Fresh Air Fund has given New York City children these life-changing experiences, where each day is an exploration of nature and a celebration of summer.
Join us on #GivingTuesday on December 2, 2014 - a global day dedicated to giving back – and help make these experiences possible for our Fresh Air children. Charities, businesses, communities, and generous supporters around the world will come together with one common goal: to celebrate the generosity of the season and to give.
Since 1877, more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities have benefitted from free summer experiences in the country through our programs, which provide children with the pure joy of carefree summer days with volunteer host families or at summer camps in upstate New York. Year-round programs offer adolescents support for educational and career goals.
