Thank you for the terrific exposure you gave The Fresh Air Fund in The Mountain Times this year by featuring our Volunteer Host Family Program in your community paper. This year we celebrated our 138th summer of serving New York City children. The coverage continues to support our volunteer leaders’ efforts to recruit more host families in Southern Vermont. By sharing these wonderful Fresh Air experiences, you have helped to spread the word to other potential supporters who keep our programs flourishing in your area.
Next summer, volunteer host families will once again open their hearts and homes to Fresh Air children, sharing the pure joys of summer with their New York City friends. Families who would like to host a child through The Fresh Air Fund can contact Joanne Pencak at 802-353-0615 or visit www.freshair.org.
We wish to thank you, and your generous community in central Vermont, once again for your continued support and for giving New York City children the chance to run barefoot through the grass, roast s’mores over a campfire, and catch fireflies at night. On behalf of The Fresh Air Fund, our local volunteers, and the thousands of children who benefit from Fresh Air programs, thank you.
Sincerely, Jenny Morgenthau, executive director of The Fresh Air Fund
