Michigan Families Need Your Help

Since its inception in 1985, THAW has distributed $216 million in assistance to almost 300,000 Michigan households.

As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, THAW depends heavily on the support of our friends, neighbors and community to help stabilize and empower Michigan families—keeping them healthy, safe and warm.

Every $3.50 donated—the price of a slice of pizza—provides a full day of electricity for a family in Michigan. With a gift today, you can help us reach our goal of providing 230 more households with utility bill assistance this month.

Your Gift by the Numbers

$50 provides a month of WiFi for a family

$320 powers a household of four for a full year
