After the 2021 National Service Project (NSP) success, Sertoma has continued to focus on different areas where Portable InfoLoops would assist the hard-of-hearing community each year. Over the past two years, we had 60 clubs and the Hearing Charities of American Board of Directors participate in giving 189 Portable InfoLoops to hospitals and other community-based organizations.
For 2022, we are inviting our clubs to raise money to purchase one (or more) Portable InfoLoops to donate to local public works office. A Portable InfoLoop system amplifies sound within a specific area for people with hearing aids. The club will present Portable InfoLoops to their local public office(s) during Better Hearing and Speech Month in May 2023.
