Kiwanis of Carlsbad has been given a grant by the Cal-Nev-Ha Kiwanis Foundation to begin a service project called The Children’s Hearing Project in collaboration with Rady Children’s Hospital of San Diego.

According to the Vice President of the Kiwanis Club of Carlsbad and Children’s Hearing Project Coordinator, Susan Almond, “Beginning in spring, the organizations will place collection containers around San Diego for people to donate hearing aids that can be turned in for credit by Rady Children’s Hospital Audiology Department, towards the purchase of new hearing aids and/or reconfigured hearing aids for a hearing impaired child.”
