While the Lehigh Valley is only a couple hours’ drive from New York City, it may be a completely unfamiliar environment for many kids who grow up in the city. The Fresh Air Fund has helped close to 2 million children from low-income communities in New York City stay with volunteer host families throughout the summer. The non-profit agency has provided kids from the city the opportunity to join families along the East Coast since 1877.
