On Tuesday, August 2nd, The Fresh Air Fund's South Fork Volunteer Committee, volunteer host families, and Fresh Air visitors came together for a summer celebration at the Southampton Inn.

Children and families relaxed and swam in the pool and enjoyed delicious food and refreshments. Through the work of The Fresh Air Fund's Friendly Towns Program, over 4,000 children will get to enjoy a summer outside of the New York City because of the volunteer host families that reside in small, rural communities along the East Coast - from North Carolina to Canada, who graciously open their homes and hearts to the Fresh Air Funders.

The children find joy in the little things that those who live outside the City sometimes take for granted. "I'm excited to go swimming and to watch the stars at night," explained ten-year-old Tyrone. "I can't see them at night in the city!" The children stayed with their local host families for one or two weeks.

The Fresh Air Fund is a not-for-profit agency that aims to provide traditional summer experiences to nearly 2 million children who reside in low-income communities in New York City.
