Barron KARES launched to support nonprofits with donations, exposure

A commitment to sharing kindness and appreciation throughout Northwest Washington has sparked Barron Heating AC Electrical & Plumbing to launch a new program, Barron KARES.

Barron Heating AC Electrical & Plumbing will shine a spotlight each month on a different charity or non-profit organization that holds high esteem among Team Barron and within the communities it serves. Barron KARES (Kindness, Appreciation, Response, Empathy, and Service) provides a charitable donation of $110 on select purchases, such as tankless water heaters, heat pumps, solar installations, generators, and more.

The company’s goal is to donate more than $10,000 each month to a worthy recipient, according to CEO Brad Barron.

“Setting each donation at $110 carries a significance rooted in the wisdom of our owner John Barron’s mentor, who advised, ‘Go above and beyond your call of duty—push past 100%, give 110% every time.’ This philosophy of exceeding expectations has become a guiding principle for us,” Brad Barron said.

“With Barron KARES, we see our commitment as more than a monetary donation. It represents a dedication to making a tangible, positive impact on the causes and individuals we support. By featuring a different charity or non-profit each month, we hope to help illuminate organizations that align with our values and resonate with our team and communities.”

Barron said February’s featured organization is Skookum Kids, a Northwest Washington nonprofit that builds resilient communities where children experiencing foster care can thrive. Skookum licenses foster parents, places children in loving homes, cares for children at its emergency shelters, and supports families rebuilding after time apart. Skookum has cared for more than 800 children at its emergency shelters in the past eight years. For more information, visit
