On Saturday February 8, 2020, dozens of people will join the Bronx Polar Bears for a dip into the brisk waters of Orchard Beach in the Bronx. As with the 2019 event, BronxNet is partnering with BronxWorks to help bring awareness to the issue of homelessness, particularly street homelessness. Bronx Works provides many services for families and individuals, including meals, shelter and housing placement for the homeless, workforce development training, youth programs and more. The Bronx Polar Bear Plunge Against Homelessness raises financial support for Bronx Works homeless services. Additionally people contribute warm clothing items including hats gloves scarves and socks.
