Providing Comfort on the Road to Recovery

feb28

In late 2016, Elite Diamond Contractor™, Augusta Fuel, Augusta, Maine, donated labor to install our Zoned Comfort Solutions™ in The Maine Chance Lodge & Retreat, in Belgrade, Maine. The retreat is a part of The Travis Mills Foundation, a nonprofit organization formed by Retired United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills, and dedicates its time to assisting combat-injured veterans. The foundation created the retreat to let veterans and their families visit and relax year-round in a stress-free environment after leaving treatment at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, Maryland.

The foundation bought and refurbished a historic mansion built by cosmetics pioneer, Elizabeth Arden, in the late 1920s. The almost 9,000-square-foot property was remodeled and divided into family suites that will be available to veterans and their families. The retreat is scheduled to open in the summer of 2017, ready to provide families with the care and comfort they need.

We are honored that our products can support the efforts of the Travis Mills Foundation, and are deeply grateful that we can provide comfort to those who serve to keep our homes safe everyday.

Providing the Comfort of Home to Our Service Men and Women

A daily routine is something most of us take for granted. While our lives may get stressful from time to time, nothing compares to the challenges our soldiers face while serving our country. Men and women in the United States Armed Forces put their lives on hold so we may enjoy our family, friends and a safe home. On this Veterans Day, we remember how important it is to recognize the service of all U.S. military veterans.

When veterans transition back to civilian life, they take on a new challenge they may not have faced before. Fortunately, there are many nonprofit organizations that help make this transition smoother. We sponsor Operation FINALLY HOME (OFH), New Braunfels, Texas and they assist wounded veterans by providing a custom-built, mortgage-free home tailored to their needs and the needs of their family. In Kansas City, Missouri, the Veterans Community Project (VCP) also offers a holistic support system for homeless veterans – providing housing, food and counseling.

Our Zoned Comfort Solutions™ have been donated to numerous custom houses in support of both OFH and the VCP. We are proud to work with these organizations and to support veterans in the way we know best: keeping them comfortable.

Operation FINALLY HOME: Our First Donation for a Hero!

Last month, we were honored to donate our residential systems to a true American hero, and mark the beginning of our official partnership with Operation FINALLY HOME!

The new home belongs to Staff Sergeant Ray Coffey, who was forced to retire after several insurgent attacks left him with severe injuries, following two deployments to Iraq. Ray returned home with a brain injury that required the temperature in his family’s home be kept so low that they had to wear heavy jackets while indoors.

Henley Homes Inc., Liberty Hill, Texas, built the custom and mortgage-free home for Ray and his family.

With the installation of our systems, Henley Homes Inc. was able to provide both Ray and his family with an environment that suits each of their needs.

“In Ray’s situation when you have migraine headaches, PTSD, he needed a dark room that we could get very cold. Mitsubishi stepped up and gave us individual room air conditioners,” said Gary Henley, co-owner of Henley Homes, Inc.

Ray’s incredible story, as well as footage of the home dedication, was picked up by broadcasting stations in Austin and Philadelphia. One anchor, Jennifer Kendall, anchor, Fox News, had it right when she said, “That means for the first time in a long time one American hero can live comfortably in his home of the brave.”

Ray’s full story can be seen here on My FOX Austin.

We’d like to offer a special thanks to Casa Mechanical Services for installing the equipment. We wish Ray and his family the best in their new home and look forward to our continued partnership with Operation FINALLY HOME in the years to come!

We first blogged about our official partnership with Operation FINALLY HOME last Veterans Day.
