Donate food, receive a free hearing aid battery
For the past three years the Lutherville-based Beltone Hearing Aid Center has partnered with local organizations to collect and donate food to those in need.
This year Beltone has teamed up with the Dundalk Church of Nazarene.
“Each year Beltone goes nationwide to feed the hungry,” Beltone patient care coordinator Jennifer Roehl said. “They ask each company to pick an area were they can donate food and this year we picked the Dundalk Church of Nazarene.”
For the entire month of September, Beltone will be collecting food from local business’s and patients.
According to Roehl, Beltone has partnered with all the businesses in close proximity, sent out emails to patients and placed advertisements asking people to help them fight against hunger.
Patients that bring in a food donation receive free hearing aid batteries and a free scheduled hearing screening.
The Dundalk Church of Nazarene has been helping families in Dundalk keep their cabinets filled with food for years.
For over five years, The Dundalk Church of Nazarene, has been helping local families obtain food and they’re excited to team up with Beltone, according to the manager of the food pantry, Michael Fiorenza.
The church helps families all year around but in the winter more families reach out.
“I think it’s great community outreach,” Fiorenza said. “I’m not sure if they will help us next year; we were surprised this year, so I guess we’ll see what happens.”
Donations can be dropped off at the Beltone Hearing Aid Center or at the Dundalk Church of Nazarene until the end of September.
