The Southern Maine Committee will be greeting 23 New York City children as they arrive in Kennebunk on 8/8/2011. The youngsters are six to 18 years old and will be visiting for two weeks or more. Some are leaving home and New York City for the first time, while others are returning to visit the same host families for consecutive summers.
THE FRESH AIR FUND, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.7 million children since 1877. Each summer, thousands of New York City children from low-income neighborhoods visit volunteer host families in 13 Northeastern states and Canada. In 2011, The Fund celebrates its 135th summer of serving children with a wide variety of special events and volunteer opportunities.
On 8/8/2011, The Fresh Air Fund’s Dawn Hansen will be on hand to welcome the young visitors. Fresh Air children and host families will also be available for interviews.
