Miracle-Ear Foundation will donate free hearing aids to 150 eligible people in the Tuskegee and Selma areas by Oct. 23 as part of its inaugural Miracle Mission.
“We’re grateful for the opportunity to help those in need as our community continues to suffer from the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting economic fallout,” said Tim Toomey, who is the owner of Alabama Miracle-Ear stores.
“This is an area that historically does not have access to a lot of hearing care and our hope is that providing free hearing aids will help those struggling communicate better with their families, friends and loved ones during this stressful and uncertain time.”
Those who are selected will receive hearing checks and health screenings before getting their hearing aids on Nov. 16, 17 and 18. Miracle-Ear Foundation calls this the Gift of Sound.
“This has been a tough time economically for those around the country, but those in Tuskegee and Selma have been hit especially hard,” said Jenni Hargraves, vice president of the Miracle-Ear Foundation. “Giving the Gift of Sound is just one tangible way we can improve the quality of life for those who need it.”
