Operation HON - Heat on Now - Ice House Experience

Our yearly Operation HON – Heat on Now – Ice House Experience allows for hundreds of Marylanders to feel what it's like to be in a home without power or electricity during winter. The event is hosted at THE AVENUE at White Marsh. Our 10x10 ice house built with 60-300 pounds of ice is constructed by ICE LAB Ice Sculptures. 

During Operation HON 2019, the Fuel Fund of Maryland raised over $30,000 for our vulnerable neighbors struggling through a utility crisis.

The 2020 FUNDRAISING GOAL is $50,000.
