What does document shredding have to do with children who are deaf and hard of hearing? Well, nothing … until now.
Hearts for Hearing, a statewide organization serving children and adults with hearing loss is partnering with R.K. Black Shredding to host a shred fundraising event, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 11 in the parking lot of its headquarters at 11500 N Portland Ave.
On that day, individuals who have old files or records to shred can stop by Hearts for Hearing where for a suggested donation they can have their documents shredded by R.K. Black Shredding.
The event comes just before the 2020 tax-filing deadline on July 15.
All funds generated from the shredding event will benefit babies and children with hearing loss served at Hearts for Hearing. As Hearts for Hearing is a 501(c)3 all contributions will be deductible for federal income tax purposes.
“As a long-time customer of R.K. Black Shredding, we are excited to partner with them in this way,” said Hearts for Hearing CEO/Executive Director Joanna Smith. “Any donation will help us reach our mission of supporting babies and children with hearing loss, and in these times, every gift helps us make a difference in their lives.”
Hearts for Hearing provides the first set of hearing aids to babies and children with hearing loss ages 10 and under at no cost to families across Oklahoma. Hearts for Hearing also provides funding for audiology and specialized speech therapy services that together teach a child who is deaf or hard of hearing to learn to listen and talk like his or her normal hearing peers.
