Mitsubishi Electric Gives Back to US Veterans
Company donates 50 Zoned Comfort Solutions™ to the Veterans Community Project
SUWANEE, Ga. — Mitsubishi Electric US Inc. Cooling & Heating Division recently donated 50 Zoned Comfort Solutions™ to the Veterans Community Project (VCP).
The VCP is a nonprofit organization serving homeless veterans in Kansas City, Missouri. Founders and veterans, Chris Stout, Kevin Jamison, and Mark Solomon, launched the program in 2015 with the goal of creating a holistic support system for men and women who have served in the U.S. military. The VCP’s services include housing veterans in the Veterans Village community as well as offering food, utilities, counseling, and employment opportunities.
In support of this project, Mitsubishi Electric donated 50 MSZ-SH09 indoor units and MUZ-SH09 outdoor units to the tiny homes in the Veterans Village and plans to donate a Zoned Comfort Solution to the 6,000-square-foot community center. The compact systems sit comfortably within each 240-square-foot house, providing the organization with an efficient utility saving system.
“Mitsubishi Electric’s efforts opened the doors for other companies to follow in their footsteps,” said Jamison, cofounder of VCP. “They were the first company to step up and donate, helping to lower the overall cost of our Veterans Village. We are grateful for their help in making this project possible.”
“The VCP is doing great work for the Kansas City community in their mission to end veteran homelessness,” said David Wadsworth, director residential business, southwest business unit, Mitsubishi Electric. “We are honored to support this organization and provide veterans a comfortable home and sense of wellbeing during their transition back into society.”
