Center for Hearing & Speech Welcomes Your Employee Charitable Giving Program!
It’s that time of year when staff at the Center for Hearing & Speech reminds you of possible giving opportunities that your employer may offer for employee charitable giving during the holidays.
As you may know, some companies choose to give to local charities as a way to give back to the community during the holiday season. If your employer provides this type of program or adopts a charity for giving this time of year, please remember the Center when nominations are being considered or accepted. The results of such a charitable campaign can be of great benefit to our clients! For example, a $7,000 donation could provide:
· Nearly 1,000 low-income children with a hearing and vision tests through our School Screening Program to detect any unseen disorders;
· Seven children each receiving 12 speech/language therapy sessions by trained and licensed speech/language pathologists in the comfort of their own schools or at the Center to help correct their problems; or
· Seven adults or five children each receiving complete hearing evaluations, one hearing aid and follow up visits to hear well and to be able to effectively communicate with others.
Every dollar donated is put to good use to help St. Louisans to communicate better and to live more fulfilled lives, so thank you for this consideration. Please let Rita or me know if your employer would require any information to set up a giving program that could benefit Center clients this holiday season!
