The Maureen's Haven program helps to feed and shelter the homeless during the cold winter months.

Don't Miss: Polar Bear Plunge, 'Freezin' A Reason'
Scores of brave souls will take the plunge on Saturday to help keep the homeless warm and fed.

The 7th Annual Polar Bear Plunge, "Freezin' For a Reason," to benefit the Maureen's Haven homeless program, takes place on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, at the Wharf House at Founder's Landing on Hobart Avenue in Southold.

Maureen's Haven, which operates under the auspices of Peconic Community Council, brings together a network of area churches and volunteers who provide the homeless with shelter, food and lunches from November 1 through March 31 every winter.

The event kicks off at 9 a.m. with registration, along with bagels, coffee, and hot chocolate donated by Panera Bread in Riverhead. 

The Plunge will begin at 11 a.m., followed by a pancake breakfast sponsored by Applebee's in Riverhead.
