A portion from the sales of coneys and coney combo specials will be THAW, a non-profit agency that provides low-income individuals and families in Michigan with emergency energy assistance. Recipients of THAW assistance include the elderly, unemployed, underemployed and disabled individuals who find themselves in temporary crisis and unable to pay their heating bills.
