Summerville SERTOMA Outreach

Summerville Sertoma Hearing Aid Bank

The Summerville Sertoma Club is committed to its mission of ‘SERvice TO MAnkind.’ In an effort to serve the community, specifically in its passion to help diagnose and treat childhood hearing loss, Summerville Sertoma has partnered with Hearing Care of Summerville to establish a hearing aid bank. All funds acquired through the hearing aid bank will contribute directly to the sponsorship of a family in the community with a child suffering from hearing loss. The funds will assist that family with the cost of expenses associated with their child’s treatment. Please consider donating your used, old, or out of date hearing aids in support.
