The ESVA Habitat for Humanity 2020 February Freeze is quickly approaching!
The February Freeze is an annual event in which volunteers form teams or participate individually by getting sponsor donations to take a quick dip in the Cape Charles waters. It has been so successful in recent years due to the support of our "Celerity Dippers" and the hardy volunteers that it is our biggest fundraiser of the year.

The dip will be held on Saturday, February 22, 2020 at the Cape Charles Beach. Please join our Celebrity Dipper Todd Burbage of Blue Water Development as he works to raise funds to provide vital housing for those in need on the ESVA. We hope you will join the fun! Individual Dippers and Teams are welcome.

Please call the Habitat Office 757-442-HOUS for registration and pledge forms or visit Eastern Shore Habitat website to print from the events page.

For the 7th year in a row, the Northampton County Sheriff's office will be sending a team to take a chilly dip in the Bay to support the Eastern Shore Habitat for Humanity. Community outreach, participation and support is an important part of the job at the Sheriff's office. Over the years, the NCSO has taken first place in the Adult Team category for raising the most money. Last year, the Eastern Shore community raised $65,000 total for ESVA Habitat for Humanity during the February Freeze. 

Grab some friends, co-workers or neighbors and head over to Cape Charles beach on February 22, 2020.  Registration will be held at Trinity United Methodist Church at 11:00 AM.   Even if you're not up for a plunge in the icy waters, you can still support the dippers by sponsoring an individual or a team. It sure is a whole lot of fun and an important cause to be a part of!
