TAPPAN—For the past two summers, 12-year-old Sharron Dubarry has left his home in Brooklyn to spend two weeks experiencing the joys of summer in Rockland County.

David and Cathy Booth first invited Sharron to their Tappan home in 2009 after opening a recruitment letter from the Fresh Air Fund, a not-for-profit agency that provides free opportunities for New York City children to enjoy summertime outside the city.

The Booths, whose two children are grown and out of the house, decided to participate in the fund’s Friendly Town Program, in which families volunteer to host a child between the ages of 6 and 12 for two weeks.
