Yet another example of Hearing Loops being embraced by organizations, in order to assist the hearing impaired.
An organization working to help those who are deaf and hard of hearing in West Michigan is funding two hearing loop systems at the Mary Free Bed YMCA in Cascade.
Quota International will help fund hearing loops for a meeting room and teaching kitchen in the YMCA, a donation totaling nearly $5,900. The West Michigan group is funding the new hearing loops at a YMCA.
Quota is based in Grand Rapids and is made up of a group of volunteers working to provide service and funding to the deaf and hard of hearing in West Michigan.
The hearing loops help enable anyone with hearing aids to hear more clearly. They are installed in individual meetings rooms and optimize the sound for each listener’s personal hearing loss and needs.
Sound becomes much clearer by switching the “t-coil” on the hearing aid and the loop system helps the hearing aid do its job.
“We are thrilled to help fund healthy hearing at the Mary Free Bed YMCA that is focused on healthy living in so many ways,” said Sue Scharf, lead on the Hearing Loop Project.
In addition, the Grand Rapids Quota Club will host its annual Duck Walk at the Mary Free Bed YMCA on Sept. 10 from 2 to 4 p.m.
The club’s goal is to fund several more hearing loop systems, which cost approximately $3,000 each.
