Donate Hearing Aids & Other Supplies
Hearing Aids & Assistive Technology
We kindly accept your used hearing aids and other hearing technology. These kinds of donations benefit HSDC and the communities we serve in a variety of ways. Some assistive technology can be loaned out for trial purposes or donated to low-income clients. Other items can be salvaged for usable parts or used directly in therapy. Donated hearing aids are often used as “Loaner Aids” for people having their hearing aids repaired. They are also salvaged and the usable parts provide funding for brand new free or reduced cost “Gift Aids” for people who would not have the resources to purchase a hearing aid otherwise.
HSDC encourages donations of used hearing aids, hearing aid accessories, and other assistive technologies in any condition. Through our reuse/recycled hearing aid program, we strive to fit hearing aids and assistive hearing equipment at a reduced cost for people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford these valuable devices. Salvage value received for irreparable hearing aids also helps us to further our mission of strengthening community by promoting effective communication.
