The first “Help America Hear” Mission took place on January 10, 2009 at the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore (CHAM) in the Bronx, NY.

Organizers Dave Carr (McGuire’s), Mitch Shapiro (Foundation for Sight and Sound) and Cary Dawson (Ear Q) joined the audiologists of the CHAM to test and fit 40 donated hearing aids for local patients.

“Help America Hear” is a program created by the Foundation for Sight and Sound, McGuire’s Hearing Services, and Ear Q. The program was developed to address the needs of underserved hearing-impaired populations.
