2019 Ice House

Thank you to everyone who came out and braved the frigid cold temperatures for our first-ever Operation Fuel - Ice House Presented by Eversource Energy!   During the day on January 31, 2019, visitors toured and sat in a 15’ x 15’ “house” made out of giant blocks of ice on the grounds of the Old State House in downtown Hartford to raise funds and awareness for the hundreds of thousands of households in our state struggling without heat or electricity.

We raised approximately $63,000 to help warm our neighbors’ homes with the support of our sponsors and many generous community individuals.  Though the event is over, donations are still coming in!  Those who wish to help local families and individuals in need may continue to donate online at
