Foundation Donates to Fresh Air Fund to Give Kids Access to Summer Camps

posted by Tariq Farid June 7, 2017

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.

Summer always marked one of my favorite seasons as a child, and in less than 100 days it will officially be summer. For many kids across the country, that means it’s time to start packing for summer camp.

For many children, camp is a great place discover their talents and skills while gaining confidence, making new friends and exploring the wonders of nature during such developmentally critical times in their life.

Edible Arrangements offers students fresh look at entrepreneurship

posted by Tariq Farid March 6, 2017

Growing up, both as an entrepreneur and young man, I had many mentors who played key roles into helping shape me into the person I am today. I am forever grateful for them, as they took time to give me and my small business the attention needed at the time.

Because of this, I have made it a mission of mine to help the future generations of entrepreneurs, whether it is globally through the International Franchise Association’s NextGen program or right here at home with the many youth and entrepreneurial programs available to students throughout the community and the region.
