LAKE PLACID - Lake Placid residents, the Donatello family, are featured in The Fresh Air Fund's 2013 calendar. Pictures were selected from the hundreds of photos of volunteer host families across 13 states from Virginia to Maine and Canada and reflect the memorable experiences they shared with their New York City visitors this past summer.
For the past three summers, the Donatellos have welcomed Maia into their hearts and home through The Fresh Air Fund's Volunteer Host Family Program.
Maia, of Brooklyn, is pictured with her Fresh Air friends, Sara, Haley and Andrew Donatello, having a piggy back race through the grass in Lake Placid.
The Fresh Air Fund, an independent, nonprofit agency, has provided free summer vacations to more than 1.7 million New York City children from low-income communities since 1877.
