Help fight hunger in our community on Saturday, December 10th, 2022! Register to plunge, donate, sponsor the PBP, volunteer, or just cheer on a loved one.



Our 2022 goal is to raise $350,000 to provide food and financial assistance to members of our community! 

Our Fundraising Goal – $350,000

Raised 35%

Saturday, December 10th, 2022


Join us for Southampton’s most highly anticipated event of the year, the Polar Bear Plunge, live and in-person!

On Saturday, December 10th, over 300 of our neighbors will take the plunge and many more people will come out and support them! 

All proceeds directly benefit our year-round Food Pantry and Assistance Programs, that currently serve more than 1,600 families in the Town of Southampton. This year’s goal is to raise $350,000 – we can make this happen with your generous support. 

For those already struggling to make ends meet, it will take years to recover from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with rising inflation and an extremely difficult housing market on the east end. We continue to add nearly 20 new families every month, illustrating how our community is very much still struggling and depends on your continued support.

The generosity from donors like you allows us to bring relief to our neighbors in need, whether it is providing food for a local family, medical transportation, or assisting with rent gaps and utility bills.

Polar Bear Plunge History

Since the first Polar Bear Plunge in 2004, the event has raised more than $1,000,000 to support HOH and its programs to help the needy on eastern Long Island. All you have to do to join the fun is sign up and collect pledges of support (donations) from your family and friends. Join us for an exhilarating leap into the holiday spirit. We guarantee it will warm your heart.  C’mon. We dare you! 

Where Do the Funds Go?

The money raised through the Polar Bear Plunge supports the Food Pantry and Assistance programs operated by Heart of the Hamptons. All the money goes to help people in need right here in our community. Your efforts help supply hot meals for the homebound, supplies/clothing for school children, warm coats, emergency fuel oil, medical transportation, food and much more. It’s a fun way to get into the holiday spirit by doing something good for your community. You’ll have cold feet but a warm heart!
