Fresh Air Fund Interviews
Host family interviews are happening NOW for anyone interested in changing a child's life through the Fresh Air Fund!
6,000 city children dream of a vacation, but only 3,000 host families participated last year. We need more in the Lehigh Valley to make these kids' dreams come true!
Email Jenae at LVFreshAir@gmail.com for info.
Trips are 1 or 2 weeks long and occur during July/August 2012. Simple application process.
Singles, couples and families can host. Children are ages 6 to 12. Fresh Air covers all costs for transportation to and from NYC as well as medical insurance. No long-term commitment unless you choose to re-invite your Fresh Air child in the following summers.
Together we can change lives!
More About Parkland Community Library
Parkland Community Library began as a grass roots effort in a small building in Guthsville, where it served residents of South Whitehall, Upper Macungie and North Whitehall. Its collection grew quickly, and by 1981 the library moved to a new building at its current location off Walbert Avenue. Now also serving a portion of West Allentown, the library is a valuable community resource, providing programs for adults and children and offering a rich collection of books, magazines, DVDs and music CDs. Library users borrow about 300,000 items annually and thousands more attend its multitude of programs. The library has continued to grow; plans call for its eventual move to a new 32,000-square-foot building in Upper Macungie.
