In the dead of winter, WAFF is partnering with Ice Lab to build a house made of 60 large blocks of ice to show what it’s like to live in a truly cold home. The Ice House is about raising awareness on what it is like to live without heat and seek donations for the Washington Area Fuel Fund.

NBC4 and our sister station, Telemundo 44, are #Working4You in our communities in D.C., Maryland and Virginia.
The Washington Area Fuel Fund (WAFF) was formed in 1983 when Washington Gas formed a partnership with Salvation Army to serve those communities struggling to pay their heating bills. The funds raised from WAFF go directly to providing heating assistance to families, veterans, seniors and others who are in need.
The inaugural ‘Ice House’ has already raised over $100,000 as a fundraiser. The big event January 18-20 is an opportunity for the community to get involved and help generate funding for those who want to be warm this winter.
