SUWANEE, Ga. — Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division donated a cooling and heating system to Ronald McDonald House® of Buffalo, N.Y., for its renovated family room. Named after former Buffalo Bills football player and core donor Phil Hansen, and his wife Dianna, the new Hansen Family Room opened to Buffalo Ronald McDonald House families. The ribbon-cutting dedication ceremony was attended by Ronald McDonald House residents, staff, and donors.

Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo is a community-supported organization that provides lodging and emotional support for families of children receiving medical treatment. Since opening in 1983, Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo has served more than 18,000 families and their children. To help mitigate the costs of revitalizing and renovating the basement lounge area and support the comfort of the Ronald McDonald House families, Mitsubishi Electric donated a Hyper-Heat (H2i®) M-Series system. Northeast Mechanical, Depew, N.Y., donated its services to install the system.

“We’re proud to help Ronald McDonald House of Buffalo provide a comfortable lounge that will give its 50 residents and their loved ones a space to receive comfort and encouragement during difficult times,” said John Matson, director of the Northeast BU, Mitsubishi Electric US Cooling & Heating Division.
