Holyoke, Massachusetts (PRWEB) August 21, 2012
Massachusetts insurance agency, Ross Insurance Agency, Inc. encourages Massachusetts residents to support a great cause this summer. Those who have not heard of the Fresh Air Fund should become aware of its mission.
The Fresh Air Fund was founded in 1877 as an independent nonprofit. The nonprofit’s main goal is to give inner-city children a fun, free and unforgettable summer experience. According to the nonprofit’s statistics, “more than 9,000 New York City children enjoy free Fresh Air Fund programs annually.” That is quite refreshing! The nonprofit reported that the following Massachusetts communities have been involved with the Fresh Air Fund over the years: Longmeadow, East Longmeadow, Holyoke, Chicopee, Monson, Agawam, West Springfield and Granville.
Since these children come from areas without yards and fun activities, they are not asking for much. The children enjoy:
- Simple games in the backyard
- Riding bicycles
- Going swimming in the pool or ocean
- Meeting new friends
- Playing in the sun
- Running through the grass
- Building sandcastles on the beach
- Going to the playground
- Swinging on a swing set
Ross Insurance Agency, Inc. encourages Massachusetts residents to take part in this great initiative. Those who are interested in hosting a child should check out the FAQ page on the official website, here.
Remember, if you do decide to host a child, you may need to update your insurance policies. Ross Insurance Agency, Inc. is dedicated to giving clients one-on-one attention. The agents at Ross Insurance are more than ready to discuss this type of situation and make sure you and the children you sponsor are protected.
