On Sunday, August 16, 2015, a hearing mission took place with the Hear for You team (Kristi MCGaffin, Melissa Hillock, Lee Baggott, Dan Baggott and Andrew Roth) in Amsterdam, NY.

This was the first year for the event and it proved to be a very moving day.  All of the candidates in attendance were extremely happy to have received the gift of better hearing.  With all the different types of hearing loss at varying degrees of severity, it is difficult to understand what one goes through on a daily basis.  Whether it is affecting their job or making it difficult to hear family at home, hearing loss has a big impact on the overall well being and health if left untreated.

Together, the Hear for You office who partnered with the Broadalbin- Perth Lions Club and the Amsterdam Rotary were able to fit 14 candidates with quality digital hearing health care.

It is important to remember that giving to others and helping improve situations is something we all can do to make the world a more loving and caring place. As the team sat down for dinner that evening, they reflected on the individuals they had fit with hearing aids throughout the day and how wonderful it is that these individuals now had the chance to hear their families again at their own dinner tables. The team made it clear that whether they are fitting hearing aids on a paying customer or a qualified candidate that the feeling and duty does not change. Instead, they are apart of an industry that focuses on better hearing and are thankful to work for a company that makes it happen everyday. What is more rewarding than that?
