It goes without saying that the challenges of the past few years have tested our strengths as individuals, companies, and communities. And as labor and supply shortages have made their way to the forefront of these challenges, we’re all being stretched in one way or another. But as the cost of living continues to increase, many deserving families in our communities aren’t just being stretched, but truly struggling to make ends meet. That’s why at Barron, we feel called to help in what ways we can.
The annual Christmas in July giving event at Barron Heating AC Electrical & Plumbing has been an event that we look forward to year after year. Looking back, it’s been an honor to help many people in our community, like Kim Eagle of Bellingham—a perfect example of resilience and the power to overcome. As a long-time gardener and two-time cancer survivor, Kim was involved in a devastating accident while shoveling bark roadside at a customer’s home. A driver who had fallen asleep at the wheel hit her from behind, pinning her to her work trailer. On top of a broken pelvis and abdominal injuries, both of Kim’s legs had to be amputated, leaving her with a long road of recovery. Kim received a well-deserved outpouring of support from her family and friends who pitched in to help remodel her space to accommodate her wheelchair. But lacking a properly working furnace for years prior, they submitted an abundance of recommendations for her for our Christmas in July event in 2021. With a story we couldn’t look past, our Barron Team was honored to equip Kim’s home with a new ductless system, making her home more comfortable for her journey ahead.
Kim’s story is one of many that we’ve been humbled by in the four years of Christmas in July at Barron. From medical hardships and lost jobs to foster parents opening their homes to others, the compassion in so many of our neighbors is extraordinary, despite the challenges they may face. Now in our fifth season, we’re searching for deserving individuals and families like these to bless for this year’s giving event. With your recommendations, we’re donating a Single-Zone Daikin Ductless Heat Pump to two families that live in the communities we serve. A ductless heat pump delivers energy-efficient heating AND cooling, providing year-round comfort to those that need it most. That means a cool escape in the summer, or a warm, comfortable home in the winter for those who might not otherwise have heat.
And looking ahead, for every Daikin comfort system purchased between now and August 31, 2022, we’ll put $100 towards a December “Furnace Fund.” This fund will be used to give the warmth of a furnace to those that need it most.
At Barron Heating AC Electrical & Plumbing, it’s been a joy to serve the communities that we call home for 50 years. We know the importance of keeping your family safe and comfortable, and want to do what we can to help our neighbors, especially during tough times. This July, join us in lending a helping hand to the many deserving families and individuals in our communities by submitting a recommendation. Visit the Barron Heating website or stop by either of our Barron showroom locations to recommend a family.
Submissions are being accepted now through July 31, 2022.
