Beltone, a global leader in hearing aids and hearing health for the past 77 years, announced the launch of the Beltone Food Drive to help feed people in need in communities throughout select cities across the U.S.
From September 11–23, the public is invited to bring one or more non-perishable food items to their participating local Beltone Hearing Center.
The Forney Hearing Center located at 763 E. US Highway 80, within the Baylor Scott & White Emergency Center located next to Jack-in-the-Box is an official Beltone Hearing location which will be collecting food donations.
Food drive donors will receive their choice of a free pack of batteries for hearing aid users (limit one per person) or, for non-hearing aid users, a free hearing screening.
Hearing screenings, which take 30 to 90 minutes, set a benchmark for a person’s ability to hear clearly. A professional screening can help with decisions on their current and future hearing needs. Call 1- 866-729-6550 to schedule your free hearing screening appointment.
Beltone will match all food donations with a monetary cash donation to Feeding America, a nationwide non-profit organization dedicated to finding community-focused solutions to hunger and poverty.
“The Beltone Food Drive is another way our company improves the quality of life in the communities we serve,” said Beltone president Corrine Perritano. “Our mission is to help people hear better through our products and professional hearing care services, but we truly enjoy going beyond this by being a good community partner and helping people in need.”
