Starkey Laboratories, the world's largest manufacturer of hearing implements, through its HEAR NOW Program, assists individuals who are residents of the United States and qualify under the National Poverty Guidelines for assistance. Since 1995, HEAR NOW has provided more than 65,000 children and adults with hearing aids when they otherwise wouldn't have been able to afford them. HEAR NOW accepts donations of old, used and no longer used hearing aids. Donated aids are sold to a repair lab, and money generated through these sales is used to purchase the aids used in the program's hearing aid assistance program. This Program allows persons with low income to purchase a hearing aid for the cost of the application process ($100 for one and $200 for two). To apply for Hear Now Aid, download an application at the Starkey website, www.sotheworldmayhear.org. Click on "HEAR NOW" and follow the link to the application. If you have questions or do not have access to the internet, call 800-648-4327 .
