A $30,000 gift from a Massachusetts-based electronics distributor is aiding Rosenbaum Family House in its mission to provide a home away from home for WVU Medicine patients and their families.

Leadership at Sager Electronics was motivated to support Rosenbaum Family House after a business partner shared her positive experience at the facility, where she stayed while supporting a family member undergoing a liver transplant.

Located steps away from J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital, Rosenbaum Family House welcomes over 1,800 families each year. The facility offers affordable lodging and meaningful support for patients and their caregivers while receiving medical care at WVU Medicine’s main campus in Morgantown.

Paul Kopp, director of supplier marketing and product management for Sager, said the company partners with one of its largest suppliers, California-based MEAN WELL USA, to contribute to organizations within its service regions that are focused on health and well-being, poverty, hunger, education, clean water and sanitation, affordable and clean energy, decent work and economic growth, and more.

“We at Sager Electronics are happy to be able to donate to organizations doing work in social care, such as Rosenbaum Family House,” Kopp said. “We couldn’t think of a better charity, and this one really touched us because we’ve seen the effects of long-term care, people struggling with bills and having to then be worried about medical care. For us, Rosenbaum was an opportunity to make a difference.”

The business partner who inspired the gift said she was grateful for not only the affordability of Rosenbaum Family House but also the kindness and support she received during her stays. She particularly appreciated the convenient coffee and snacks, visits from a support animal, and educational information provided about WVU Medicine services.

“We are grateful to Sager Electronics and MEAN WELL USA for their generosity,” Dana Schutte, director of Rosenbaum Family House, said. “Gifts such as these help Rosenbaum Family House continue as a place of respite for those in need. It is commendable that these organizations are dedicated to improving the plight of others in the region.”

Sager Electronics is a wholly owned subsidiary of TTI Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway Inc. company, that distributes interconnect, power, and electromechanical products across the United States.

MEAN WELL USA is a subsidiary of MEAN WELL group, a worldwide leading standard power supply manufacturer. 

Rosenbaum Family House relies on charitable donations to ensure that WVU Medicine patients and their families have an affordable place to stay. To make a gift, visit or contact Director of Development Brandon Cook at or 304-554-0240.
