Gov. Margaret Hassan has proclaimed March 20 Fresh Air Fund Day throughout the state, in recognition of The Fresh Air Fund’s 137th summer of bringing together New York City children and volunteer host families in New Hampshire.
Families who participate in The Fresh Air Fund’s Volunteer Host Family Program open their hearts and homes to New York City children for one or two weeks or more in the summer.
First-time Fresh Air visitors are six to 12 years old and Fresh Air hosts range from young families to grandparents. Families find hosting so rewarding that more than 65 percent of all Fresh Air children are reinvited visit the same host families year after year.
