We are proud that America Hears' customers' donations are supporting needy children with the gift of better hearing as well as Rotary International's stated goal to help 'stop the cycle of illiteracy and poverty.'
Bristol, PA (PRWEB) August 5, 2009 -
America Hears, Inc., made its fourth donation of more than 100 used hearing aids to Help the Children Hear, a program administered by the Rotary International Foundation to provide hearing assistance to needy children. America Hears, the leading manufacturer and marketer of premium digital hearing aids sold over the Internet, offers a $100 incentive to customers who trade in any brand of old hearing aids and trade up to next-generation digital hearing aids from America Hears. The company has been donating all hearing-aid trade-ins to Help the Children Hear since August 2008.
With the donation by America Hears President and CEO Henry C. Smith Sr. to the Rotary Club's Michael J. Buchheit, America Hears has now donated more than 400 hearing aids to Help the Children Hear, Inc. Established by Rotary Clubs in New Jersey and in Tucuman Sur, Argentina, the program provides reconditioned donated hearing aids to assist lower-income hearing-impaired children.
"Extensive research has shown that the earlier children with hearing loss get hearing aids, the more likely they are to acquire the education and skills they need to become productive members of society," said Smith. "We are proud that America Hears' customers' donations are supporting needy children with the gift of better hearing as well as Rotary International's stated goal to help 'stop the cycle of illiteracy and poverty.'"
