Holiday Season Charity Partner
In addition to food, fun and festivities, this holiday season, we want to harness the power of HARMAN to support a local organization: The Heat and Warmth (THAW) Fund.
The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW) is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is to stabilize and empower Michigan families—keeping them healthy, safe and warm. THAW envisions a Michigan in which every family has access to affordable utilities, energy efficient homes and viable job opportunities.
Through nearly 40 agency partners and a series of annual mobile processing events, THAW distributes energy and utility assistance to an ever-growing number of Michigan households each year. Since it’s inception in 1985, THAW has distributed over $216 million in assistance to nearly 309,000 Michigan households.
THAW’s Guiding Principles:
- We serve with dignity, empathy, compassion and respect.
- Heat, electricity and water are essential and basic human needs.
- We improve the quality of life in Michigan and prevent human suffering.
- We value partnerships and collaborations that enhance our service to our customers.
- Our employees are champions and advocates for those we serve.
