“What should I do with my old hearing aids?” is one of the most recurring questions ESCO receives from customers.

There is often not a lot of thought given to your old hearing aids once you have purchased new devices. Quite often these devices get set aside, put in a drawer, or are simply tossed.

Instead, have you considered donating your hearing instruments?

A hearing aid that is no longer being used can make a big difference in someone else’s life – someone who could not afford a hearing aid without your donation. It could help a mother or father gain employment, or obtain a higher paying position.  It could improve a child’s ability to hear their teacher in the classroom and excel in school. Even just one used hearing aid can give the gift of sound, improving a person’s quality of life.

There are 36 million Americans living with significant hearing loss.Hearing-aid-project.jpg

The Hearing Aid Project, a program that aims to provide low-income people across the United States with access to hearing aids at no cost to promote healthier hearing is the option that ESCO highly recommends.

Central to The Hearing Aid Projects mission is the collection of hearing aids that have sat in drawers or have been discarded after users purchased new hearing aids. The donated devices are refurbished and fitted to new recipients, significantly eliminating financial obstacles that keep many low-income men, women and children from getting the hearing aids they need to restore and improve their quality of life.

This program serves all, from young adult through seniors. All donations are tax deductible and you will receive a letter of acknowledgment.
