Beltone of Royal Palm Beach recently announced that it will be participating in the third annual Beltone National Food Drive to help fight hunger, joining hundreds of other Beltone Hearing Centers across the country.
Throughout September, people are invited to bring in a non-perishable food item to Beltone Royal Palm Beach, located at 1240 Royal Palm Beach Blvd. in the Publix shopping center. All food donations will be distributed to the Oasis Church Thanksgiving Blessing Basket program in Loxahatchee.
At the end of the month, Beltone will make a financial donation based on all food collected to Feeding America, a nonprofit organization providing food assistance to an estimated 46.5 million people annually.
Once people donate, they can choose to make an appointment for a free hearing screening in appreciation of their contribution. According to National Institutes of Health, approximately 15 percent of American adults (37.5 million) aged 18 and over report some trouble hearing. Those donating food who already wear hearing aids will receive a free pack of batteries. They can also try the company’s newest hearing aids, Beltone Amaze.
“We are dedicated to helping improve the quality of life in the communities where we live and work, and that doesn’t stop with hearing,” said hearing care specialist Susan Horne.
Founded in 1940, Chicago-based Beltone is part of the GN Group. Beltone provides industry-leading products, services and support for its centers that operate in more than 1,500 offices.
