We’re so pleased with how well our Hearing the Call event in Burlington, CO went in early August! Hearing the Call is dedicated to their mission of providing affordable hearing healthcare to their communities, which means all Hearing the Call events are of huge importance to all of us, as we’re committed to the same mission. The Hearing the Call campaign brings hope and healing to the hearing-impaired locally in Colorado. Through quality healthcare, they help people connect with family, education, and opportunities.
Thanks to all the volunteers, donors, and attendees for making the event such a huge success!
On Saturday, August 7th, we fit 11 income-qualified people from Burlington, CO with hearing aids. It was a small event that allowed us to connect to our community and provide them the extra care they deserve to ensure a proper fit. We were fortunate to have our meals and all hearing aids donated to us by Signia Hearing Aid Company. In addition, we were thrilled to have Sonie Harrie, Au.D., Clinical Trainer as a volunteer to support the mission.
Hearing the Call events are designed to do more than just provide affordable hearing care for income-qualified folks, read on to learn more.
Hearing the Call – How it works
Hearing the Call calls it the Hand Up — Not a Handout approach. This means every beneficiary of the program is asked to donate 10 hours of volunteer time to organizations within their community. That’s why this program is such a success: those with hearing loss get the help they need and in turn, provide help and support to others, too.
These events not only provide hearing healthcare on the day but for years down the line. After qualified patients are tested and fitted, they can continue to receive a year of complimentary aftercare. And after that year-long period, patients need only pay $15 for any office visit thereafter—a lifetime of affordable hearing care.
Hearing the Call is always accepting donations, so if you’re interested in helping out, visit their site. For any other hearing health needs, let us help! We can help with a diagnostic hearing test, with cleaning your hearing aids, or with an ear cleaning. Reach out to us today!
