Help Others

Put a warm feeling in your heart by helping some of Michigan’s most vulnerable--low-income families and seniors--pay their energy bills this winter. With the reduction in government energy assistance programs, your help can make a difference in the lives of many.

The Heat and Warmth Fund (THAW)

A leading provider of utility assistance in the state of Michigan, The Heat and Warmth Fund helps support long-term energy needs for the elderly, the unemployed and the disabled. Text THAW to 50555 to donate $10 to The Heat and Warmth Fund.

The Coalition to Keep Michigan Warm

A group of energy providers, state government bodies and nonprofit groups, The Coalition to Keep Michigan Warm delivers energy assistance to low income households
