Suffolk County, NY - March 28th, 2016 - National Volunteer Week marks a special time of year for The Fresh Air Fund, and during this special time, they would like to extend their sincere thanks to the wonderful Fresh Air volunteers, hosts and supporters in Suffolk County.
Their continued dedication to our New York City children is exemplary for all community members and truly embodies the spirit of the 2016 National Volunteer Week, which is from April 10th to April 16th.
Fresh Air volunteers work in several capacities throughout the year along the East Coast from North Carolina to Maine and Southern Canada to help make The Fresh Air Fund’s programs possible. Fresh Air host families open their hearts and homes, and share the everyday joys of summertime with their Fresh Air friends.
Their local volunteer leaders – many of whom are also hosts – serve on the Fresh Air Fund's local committees, interview prospective host families, publicize the program, and plan summer activities.
Additionally, individuals and local businesses give generously of their time and resources to make The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Towns Program throughout this area a great success each Summer.
