Hearing Associates is donating funds to help keep families warm this winter.
We are donating a portion of all hearing aid sales and $20 for every free screening completed in March to Low Income Home Energy Assistance (LIHEAP). This program – an outreach effort of the North Iowa Community Action Organization – helps low-income residents pay a portion of their winter heating costs by making a one-time payment to a heating or fuel company on the person’s account.
To be eligible, families can earn up to 175% of the federal poverty level during the previous fiscal year. Priority is given to the elderly (age 60 and older) and/or disabled, who are encouraged to apply between October 1 and April 30. Other households can apply November 1 through April 30. For more information on the assistance program, call 800.873.1899 or 641.423.7766.
Thanks to those who came in for their appointments and purchased hearing aids, Hearing Associates was able to donate $2,425.
