Daniel Cormier, Jewett City, was among the winners of The Fresh Air Fund’s 2009 Photo Contest! All winners were selected from the hundreds of pictures sent in by volunteer host families throughout 13 Northeastern states and Canada, reflecting the memorable experiences they shared with their New York City visitors this past summer. Categories included Best Friends, Making Waves, Reunions and many more.
Daniel’s photo was awarded second place in the Best Arrival Moment category, and features the Pettigrew Family, Moosup, welcoming 11-year-old Bryana for her two-week Fresh Air visit.

This summer, nearly 5,000 New York City children visited volunteer host families in suburban and rural communities through The Fund’s Friendly Town program.
Summer 2010 will be upon us quickly, and The Fresh Air Fund needs more families to volunteer as hosts. There are no financial requirements for hosting. All that is needed is a little extra room in your heart and home.
