Winter is a cold and frightening time of the year for thousands of Michigan families who are struggling to heat their homes. The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW) has been assisting Michigan residents facing an emergency energy crisis over 30 years and we anticipate the “need” this year to be greater than ever. Heat and lights during a Michigan winter are a necessity, not a luxury. During the cold months ahead many are faced with unimaginable choices such as heating or eating, those most vulnerable in these conditions are children, seniors and people with serious medical conditions. To help those facing such a crisis, WWJ Newsradio 950 and The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW) are partnering for the 14th Annual Winter Survival Radiothon presented by DTE Energy. Your pledge to THAW will warm a heart and a home.

WWJ Newsradio 950 will broadcast LIVE on Friday, Feb. 10, 2017,  5 a.m. – 7 p.m., to help raise much needed funds for THAW.

  • Live interviews with families that THAW has helped during previous years will air during the Radiothon, as well as on-air check presentations from sponsors, on-site reporting and so much more.
  • The heart of the Winter Survival Radiothon is the on-site donation call center, where volunteers will be taking phone pledges and auction bids.
  • Listen throughout the day for your chance to win great incentive items just by making a donation.

Last year’s Winter Survival Radiothon raised over $1 million in energy assistance and we could not have done this without your help. We are encouraging you to donate by hosting or participating  in a variety of activities to help raise money for THAW. These funds will help thousands of Michigan individuals and families stay healthy, safe and warm this winter.
