Svendsen Family of Rehoboth Wins Award in the Fresh Air Fund’s Annual Photo Contest


Rehoboth residents, the Svendsen’s, participated in The Fresh Air Fund’s Friendly Towns Program this past summer and were among the winners of the 2017 Photo Contest! All winners were selected from the hundreds of photos submitted by volunteer host families along the East Coast and Southern Canada. The photos capture the memorable experiences our volunteer host families shared with Fresh Air children this past summer. Categories include “Backyard Fun,” “Friendship,” “New Experiences,” “Exploring Nature,” “Swimming,” “The Beach” and “Ice Cream.”

The Svendsen’s photos were selected as the winners in the “Summer Sister & Then and Now” categories, and features Fresh Air child, Abigail, 10, riding her bicycle and eating ice cream cones with her host sister Maura in the Norfolk County area.

The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, not-for-profit agency, has provided free summer experiences to more than 1.8 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877. To learn more about hosting a Fresh Air child next summer, please contact your local volunteer Sarah Bates at 401-226-6764 or visit The Fresh Air Fund at www.freshair.org.
