Today over 50 million people in the United States alone suffer from some kind of hearing loss. With our technological life style, that number continues to grow. Once hearing loss occurs, it cannot be restored. We can imitate it with hearing devices, but it will never be as clear or concise as it once was. After hearing is lost it becomes one of the most expensive parts of life to maintain. Some insurance companies will pay for testing or will give discounts on equipment, but many will not pay a dime. Our passion is to create a world where everyone who chooses, can hear us. And our passion will compel us to raise awareness of our cause, educate those willing to understand, and support those who need our support. Hearing health needs allies and advocates, educators and healers. Sertoma communities share the common belief that attention paid to hearing health adds quality to lives and communities.
We screen 13,000 children annually in Pasco County Schools including Head Start Program and Day Care. This happens because of VOLUNTEERS. Sign up to be a volunteer!
Serving mankind starts locally. Sertoma Club of Bradenton helps our local community and many charitable organizations in Manatee and Sarasota county.
