Commitment to Community
Mountain Audiology Gift of Hearing 2018
As an Audiologist and the owner and practice manager of Mountain Audiology, I am excited to announce the Mountain Audiology Gift of Hearing, a new addition to our Commitment to Community programs, in which we are donating a pair of advanced digital hearing instruments and will provide clinic care for one year from one of our Doctors of Audiology, at no charge, to one member of our community who could otherwise not afford treatment.
To participate in the Mountain Audiology Gift of Hearing program, submit an essay of 400 words or less, describing why you or someone you know needs treatment, but is unable to afford it, and how treatment will impact his/her life and their community. Please include the following in your essay:
- Hearing Need
- Financial Need
- Opportunity to impact recipient’s life
- Opportunity for their treatment to impact the lives of people in our community
- Where participant lives (entries limited to those residing in Haywood County)
Our 2018 Gift of Hearing will run from November 23, 2018 to December 28, 2018. Please submit essays via e-mail to: [email protected] or mail to 61 Haywood Park Drive Suite B, Clyde, NC 28721. The recipient will be selected by a panel of community members, including the staff Mountain Audiology, and notified by January 15, 2019.
With the Mountain Audiology Gift of Hearing program, we hope to raise awareness about the impact of hearing loss on not only individuals, but on families and our community as well. Helen Keller said it best “blindness cuts us off from things, but deafness cuts us off from people”.
Mountain Audiology is also playing secret Santa to a few children in the Haywood County Schools (shhh!). We invite you to call the office If you would like to join us by making a financial donation or purchasing an item from their wish list and add to the squeals of delight on Christmas morning in Haywood County!
