Supporting The Big Country Through The “Give Hear Program”
Here at Holland Hearing Center, we feel a large obligation as the hearing care experts in Big Country.
With so many people walking around with an untreated hearing loss due to the financial investment required to achieve better hearing, it breaks our heart that so many people are suffering from minimized communication, loneliness and a feeling of not being themselves anymore.
That’s why, in 2019, we teamed up United Way of Abilene!
United Way is a selfless organization that believes that everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: That’s why United Way’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life. They work with Community Partners to address the needs of today and tomorrow while seeking ways to create positive, lasting change. We all win when people are healthy.
Working together we have created the “Give Hear Program”.
The Give Hear Program was created to allow those in our community who have hearing loss and cannot otherwise afford hearing help, the opportunity to receive that help. This is a program in which donated hearing aids, provided by those in our community, are reconditioned and repurposed to be fitted and given to others.
Leveraging the power of our “Back Buy Program” and the support from United Way of Abilene’ We are donating completely refurbished hearing aids that have been given to us by patients and fitting them to people throughout the community in need.

Patients Supported Through the ‘Give Hear Program’
“This last year has been a rough one for me and my family. We have had to deal with a lot including the total loss of our home to a fire. When my world was so overwhelming with stress, God heard my prayers! He placed a perfect stranger in my life to remind me that there’s still good in this hectic world. This man, Mr, Moore, donated a pair of hearing aids. His kindness blows my mind. He changed my world so much! You never realize how bad your hearing is until your hearing aids are fit and your hearing once again. I am blessed with hearing all conversations with my grandkids now, and a lot of sounds I forgot about. I can’t express my appreciation enough. Thank you! You will never know who or when God will place an earthly angel to help us and answer our prayers. Thank you for everything and giving me a better quality of hearing and life. I also wanted to thank Sue Ann and the staff. They are amazing! Sending love to all! Thank you.”
