Three Simple Ways to Support the Hearing Aid Project

October 14, 2016

Awareness of the Hearing Aid Project is growing across the nation, and you or your club can join our community efforts through: Getting, Giving and Helping.

Get– refer low income individuals in your area to the project who are in need of hearing aids. We will help connect them with their state resources first, and then to the Hearing Aid Project if their local resources are unable to help.

Give– donate hearing aids or establish hearing aid collection centers in your community

Help– carry out an online personal fundraiser, recruit audiologists to participate, and/or host a CELEBRATE SOUND event to benefit the project

Email hcoa@sertomhq.org and let us help you or your club get involved in the National Hearing Aid Project!

    I live in Hudson, Florida and have a hardly used pair of hearing aids, batteries and other things for the aids. Is there a place in my area to donate these to.

    Hi Merritt,
    I am a grandmother raising her 2 grandchildren. I often miss what they say and it hurts our communication which causes misunderstandings. We have a limited income; social security and foster care. I have been trying to find work to implement our income but my inability to hear limits me. I have a hearing aid that is about 10 years old. It is just not working as well as it did. I have been given hearing aids but I can not get a doctor to adjust them to my level of loss. It would help me if you might suggest someone who could re furbish them or adjust them to my levels for a modest price. The real irony is I have a spending account through my ex employer with over $3000. Unfortunately, I have to pay upfront and wait to get the money back… I just do not have the upfront cash to buy them. Thank you for listening to my complaints. I live in Marysville, Ca.Sincerely

    I am a doctor on the north side of Chicago. A 73 year old male patient has lost his hearing aids and cannot afford to buy new ones. He lives hand to mouth on Social Security. Is there a way that the Hearing Aid Project can help him?

    • Merritt Whitley says:

      Hello Ellen!

      Your information and inquiry has been passed directly to the Hearing Aid Project Manager. She will be in contact with you shortly to provide more information. If you have any additional questions, please let us know.

      Sincerely,
      Sertoma Inc.
