Hearing Associates of South Carolina marks 20th anniversary with acts of service

In honor of its 20th anniversary, Hearing Associates of South Carolina is performing 20 Acts of Service this year. The goal is to give back to at least 20 local organizations from May 2024 to May 2025.

“As we mark two decades of serving the Aiken community, we’re embarking on a special journey to give back,” said Brady Francis, an owner of Hearing Associates, in a news release. “20 Acts of Service is not just a celebration of our past but a commitment to our future in Aiken.”

Hearing Associates already exceeded its goal for its first project, raising at least $2,000 in May for the Buddy Club at Aiken High School. The club helps special needs students go on trips and spend time with their peers. Hearing Associates raised and donated $8,000 to the club.

“We are not just giving money. An Act of Service could be volunteering with an organization that needs extra hands for a day or an area of Aiken that needs cleaning up,” said Dr. Sherri Little, audiologist and founder of Hearing Associates. “We could also be collecting goods to donate to a cause.”

Hearing Associates plans to volunteer with Koda’s Kids and the annual Fit 4 School school supply drive in the coming months, the news release continued.

Hearing Associates has launched a website at GivingBackToAiken.com where local organizations can submit their needs. Each month, Dr. Little and her team will pick at least one organization to focus on.

Giving back to the community is nothing new for Hearing Associates. Over the past 20 years, the practice has donated countless hours and more than $500,000 to Aiken County organizations, including the Aiken Sertoma Club, Aiken County Public Schools and the Aiken Steeplechase Association, the release continued.

“Everyone at Hearing Associates lives and works in Aiken County, and we love it here. We just want to do our part to help,” Little said. “We feel it is very important to do what we can to support the wonderful community that has supported us through the years.”

Hearing Associates of South Carolina provides professional hearing health services and hearing aids in two locations, 39-A Varden Drive, Aiken, and 105 E. Hugh St., Suite 103, North Augusta. For more information, go to HearingAssociatesOfSC.com.
