The countdown to summer has begun. Please join me in a countdown to summer and help give Greater New Haven children a summer full of adventures and opportunities. Since 1905, the New Haven Register’s Fresh Air Fund, a non-profit, has provided summer experiences to more than 35,000 young people in greater New Haven.
When you give to the New Haven Register Fresh Air Fund, you are giving children that chance to sit in the sun and laugh, learn and celebrate summer. Fresh Air Fund campers are the kids who motivate their peers and give back. They’re the kids who grow into future leaders. They might establish their own companies, like I did.
Growing up in West Haven, I benefited from going to summer camp. I believe in giving back and making opportunities available for others, especially children. Three years ago, The Tariq Farid Foundation made its first donation to the Fresh Air Fund to help send kids to camp. Recently, the Foundation made another donation.
I believe that when God blesses you, the way to be thankful is to look around and give back.
Help a young person to experience all the fun, friendships and adventures that summer camp offers. Consider a donation to the Fresh Air Fund. It doesn’t take a lot to make a difference.
