DiversiTech is proud to support House in the Woods, an outdoor retreat program that honors America’s armed forces and their families by assisting them in their journey towards mental and physical healing.
DiversiTech donated eight sets of condensing unit-mounting brackets (QSWB-2000) to support the HVAC needs of a new lodge that can house up to 24 veteran guests overnight. The much-needed facility, located on 4.5 acres in Lee, Maine, also consists of storage space for recreational equipment and vehicles, and provides office space for the organization’s paid and volunteer staff.
DiversiTech’s heavy-duty 12-guage steel brackets, mounted on the outside of the building, are holding Fujitsu condensing units for mini-split systems that provide indoor comfort for all who use the lodge.
“When we learned of this unique program for our veterans, we wanted to participate and show our support for them and their families,” said DiversiTech Bill Crowley, vice president of mounting systems. “Although insignificant to the sacrifices of those who serve our country, we hope our donation contributes to the great mission of House in the Woods.”
DiversiTech’s donation to House in the Woods continues the company’s tradition of donating various product and time to important causes. DiversiTech has long been involved with donating product to vocational schools in an effort to help students learn proper installation methods.
House in the Woods was founded by Paul House and Bill Emery, fathers who both lost their sons in the Iraq War. A not-for-profit organization, since 2010 House in the Woods has helped hundreds of veterans and their families to heal from the sacrifices and challenges of their military service to the nation. Using outdoor wilderness activities in Maine and other natural habitats, the organization provides a free educational, therapeutic and recreational retreat in a safe and nurturing environment for all veterans and their families.
