Beltone announces it will be participating in the third annual Beltone National Food Drive to help fight hunger, joining hundreds of other Beltone Hearing Centers across the country.  

Throughout September, people are invited to bring in a non-perishable food item to Beltone on Lee Highway, the Hixson office off of Highway 153 and the Cleveland office on Paul Huff Parkway.  For the location address, call 423-665-4893.

All food donations will be distributed to Chattanooga Food Bank. 

At the end of the month, Beltone will make a financial donation based on all food collected to Feeding America, a non-profit organization providing food assistance to an estimated 46.5 million people annually, including 12 million children and 7 million seniors.

"Once people donate, they can choose to make an appointment for a free hearing screening in appreciation of their contribution," officials said.  "According to National Institutes of Health, approximately 15 percent of American adults (37.5 million) aged 18 and over report some trouble hearing." 

Those donating food who already wear hearing aids will receive a free pack of batteries.  They can also trial the company’s newest hearing aids, Beltone Amaze.

“We are dedicated to helping improve the quality of life in the communities where we live and work, and that doesn’t stop with hearing,” says President Perry Ebel.
