Open your Heart and Home this Summer and Watch Something Amazing Happen

“It's simple.  It's easy.  You'll be amazed how quickly you can fall in love with these children,” says Jennifer Kreutz-Casto, of Lancaster, NY, whose family has been hosting through The Fresh Air Fund’s Volunteer Host Family Program since 2010. “We have changed and gained more from these kids than I could have imagined. Just the sight of all my children – Fresh Air kids included – playing and laughing like they've known each other forever... it's amazing.”

We are thrilled that Jennifer has taken on the role of Assistant Fund Representative for the Western New York area and joined our amazing volunteer leaders as they recruit dedicated families to host Fresh Air children this summer.

“All the children want is to hang out and swim or play with the grass under their feet. I look forward to spreading the word and sharing my experiences about The Fresh Air Fund,” says Jennifer, who is so grateful to the person who mentioned it to her family.  “I remember just thinking: 10 days?  We can do that.  I'm glad we did.”
