The Fresh Air Fund's Burlington-area committee is currently preparing for summer 2009 and eagerly awaiting the arrival of their New York City visitors.
To ensure that this summer is special for Fresh Air children, the Fund is seeking volunteer members and host families to sign up now. Local Fresh Air Fund volunteers recruit and interview host families, arrange travel and coordinate fun activities in their communities.
In 2009, the Fresh Air Fund celebrates its 133rd summer of bare feet, sandcastles and starry nights for children from some of New York City's low-income communities.
