Fresh Air Fund

By Skye Rohde

Oswego, NY – The Fresh Air Fund is a 126-year-old program that brings low-income children from New York City, ages 6 to 18, to suburbs and small towns across the northeast during the summer. Over 5,000 children each year stay with volunteer host families from Virginia to Maine and up into Canada. Another 3,000 attend Fresh Air camps in Fishkill, New York. WRVO's Skye Rohde was there when the Fresh Air Fund bus pulled into Oswego earlier this week.
