Learn more about give hear

The Give Hear Program officially launched November 1, 2019. This program will allow those in our community who have hearing loss and cannot otherwise afford hearing help, the opportunity to receive that help.

Our hope is to provide a life changing opportunity to those right here in our own community. Historically, donated hearing aids were sent to a national organization that obviously had no effect on individuals right here in town. Now, with this new program, we can help address that unmet need.

Candidates who wish to benefit from this program must apply through 2-1-1 and meet certain criteria. If selected, the candidate will be eligible for services as well as donated hearing aids. Donated hearing aids, provided by patient’s and the local community, are sent off to be reconditioned and repurposed in order to provide these individuals with quality equipment.

United Way of Abilene & 2-1-1

In order for this program to be successful, those interested in giving back are encouraged to do so through the trade-in incentive plan. Based upon the age and condition of your hearing aids, Holland Hearing will in turn determine their credit value.

If you know of someone who may benefit from this service, please have them call 2-1-1 for further information on how to apply. If you would like to donate used or dated hearing aids to this program, we ask that you call Holland Hearing Center at (325) 437-4730.

Had gotten hearing aids from another facility in town, never heard another word from them. Holland called several times to make sure everything was ok.
