Host a Fresh Air Child This Summer – Informational Wine and Cheese Party – April 8
Point Person: Eileen Brazitis - 610-639-1159, firstname.lastname@example.org
Families are needed to host Fresh Air Children this summer. There are children living in NYC who do not have the opportunity to experience the simple summer joys our children enjoy by living in this area. By becoming a host, you will provide an opportunity for a child to experience things he or she may not ever be able to experience living in the city - running barefoot in the grass, picking fresh flowers, casting a fishing pole or swimming in a lake lit only by the stars. The evening is being hosted by Eileen and Neil Brazitis on Thursday, April 8 at 7:30 p.m. Please see attached flyer for more information.
