Beltone Hearing Center Hosting September Food Drive

Community invited to drop off food;
receive free hearing test or hearing aid batteries

KNOXVILLE - Beltone will participate in the third annual Beltone National Food Drive to help fight hunger. They join hundreds of other Beltone Hearing Centers across the country.

Throughout September, people are invited to bring in a non-perishable food item to Beltone. Beltone is located at 12744 Kingston Pike, Ste. 102 in the Renaissance Plaza. Food donations will be distributed to the local Food Bank.

At the end of the month, Beltone will make a financial donation based on all food collected to Feeding America. Feeding America is a non-profit organization that provides food assistance to an estimated 46.5 million people annually, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors.

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 trial 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,” says President, Perry Ebel.
