Helping America Hear
At Audiology Island we are all about helping people. We have helped the Staten Island community after the devastating hurracaine Sandy, and now we found out that one of the great Hearing Aid companies – ReSound is doing a great deed that we would love to share with our blog readers.
ReSound works with Help America Hear, a program created by the Foundation for Sight and Sound. ReSound donates hearing aids to the program, which in turn provides these hearing aids free of charge to qualified individuals. To qualify, individuals must submit financial information to show that Help America Hear is a last resort for them. Since its creation in 2009, Help America Hear has provided hearing aids to 465 people that would have not have been able to afford them.
Every year, the Foundation for Sight and Sound awards a Help America Hear scholarship to high school seniors who have a hearing loss that requires the use of hearing aid(s) in their daily life.
