This summer 41 New York City children found out just how special summer in the Hoboken area really is. Thanks to the dedication of the Fresh Air Fund hosts, volunteers and supporters, these inner-city youngsters spent a fun-filled summer vacation in your community. Our city children experienced the simple summertime pleasures of the Hoboken area.
None of this would be possible without Mary Martire, your local Fresh Air Fund volunteer leader, who works throughout the year to make sure summer magic happens with host families and children. Mary's generosity and commitment is an inspiration to us all. I invite you to join Mary next summer in planning fun summer activities, interviewing prospective host families and/or hosting a child.
The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer vacations to over 1.7 million disadvantaged New York City children since 1877. For more information on how you can help to continue this wonderful tradition of volunteering, please call Angie Pender-Fox at 800-367-0003, ext. 8889 or visit www.freshair.org.
