SHARP
Sertoma Hearing Aid Recycling Program

The Sertoma Hearing Aid Recycling Program helps needy individuals obtain hearing aids. Many of our clubs work with non-profit organizations, hospitals, or school districts in their area to fund hearing aids or other hearing and speech related needs. Clubs collect used hearing aids, have them refurbished, and distribute them to people in need. Participating clubs are listed below. If you do not see a club in your area go to our Hearing Aid Resources page to find other organizations with hearing aid programs.
