METUS donates to non-profit grief centers in New Mexico

HVAC systems part of new expansion

Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US (METUS) has donated heating and cooling systems to the Children’s Grief Center and Grief Resource Center of New Mexico, a non-profit organization committed to addressing the challenges children, adults and families face following the death of a loved one.

Children’s Grief Center needed a larger facility to offer grief support services to a growing number of families. The Albuquerque, NM building purchased for the organization’s expansion required new heating and cooling equipment. METUS was connected with the group and offered to supply a CITY MULTI R2-Series VRF zoning system for the facility. The donated Mitsubishi Electric equipment includes:

  • Four Ceiling Concealed Indoor Units (PEFY-P12NMSU-ER2, PEFY-P15NMSU-ER2 and PEFY-P18NMSU-ER2)
  • Two 4-way Cassette Indoor Units (PLFY-P15NFMU-E)
  • Two Modular Outdoor Units (PURY-P72TMU-A)
  • One Grille (SLP-18FAU)

“We’re incredibly grateful for the donations and partnerships that have helped make our dream of a larger facility a reality,” said Jade Richardson Bock, Executive Director, Children’s Grief Center and Grief Resource Center. “The donation from Mitsubishi Electric will allow us to provide a comfortable environment for our families to gather and learn to heal from the loss of a loved one.”

“The center has such an important mission,” says Sandra Parr, regional marketing manager, METUS. “We’re proud to support their efforts and help create a more comfortable setting for community members navigating grief.”

Since 2001, Children’s Grief Center’s mission has been to provide a safe and supportive environment where young people and their caregivers can share their feelings and experiences while grieving a death. In 2020, they merged with the Grief Resource Center, providing grief support services for adults.

As a new, joint organization, Children’s Grief Center and Grief Resource Center moved to its new location on December 28, 2020. The larger facility is currently under renovation, projected to be completed by Fall 2021.
