It breaks our heart, but 1 in 5 kids don’t have enough food, right here in Escambia and Sana Rosa counties.

No child should go to bed hungry. So many families are struggling to put food on the table, especially now with income loss due to COVID-19.

That’s why, this November, we’re partnering with Manna – a local grassroots organization fighting local hunger – by running a food drive. If you have an appointment during this month, then please bring a canned food item along and drop into our donation box.

All food items will be distributed through Manna and go directly to the people that need them. Your help could be the difference between a meal on the table for local children. If you’d like to help further, please visit the Manna website by clicking here.

Who Is Manna & What Do They Do?

Manna is a local grassroots organization fighting hunger in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. They provide groceries directly to individuals and families in need. Their services are all offered free of charge. They receive no government funding and have no national affiliation.

Most of their funding comes from individuals, foundations, faith-based organizations, corporations, and businesses. Manna is nonsectarian, community-focused, and volunteer-supported.

They believe every person has a right to live free of hunger and to be treated with respect and dignity and so do we!

    I enjoy my life much more with my hearing back intact

     

    The first time I noticed signs of a hearing loss was back when I was with the Memphis Police Force on the first anti-sniper unit (SWAT) team. Shooting many rounds of guns a week led to ringing in my ears, which it seemed was the start of my hearing loss.
    The Hearing Center is the very best in the business. They were the most helpful in the profession that I had seen.
    Since getting my hearing aids, I have no regrets. I enjoy my life much more with my hearing back intact.
    If you are considering using The Hearing Center, expect to be impressed by the best in the hearing aid business. It’s wonderful to hear well again and I can’t thank them enough.

    I was very impressed. The people were friendly and knowledgable.

     

    I first noticed my hearing loss when I was having to ask people to repeat themselves a lot. I decided to get my first hearing test and I was very impressed with the service from The Hearing Center. The people were friendly and knowledgeable.
    Now, I would not be able to cope without my hearing aids. I can now carry a conversation.
    I can highly recommend seeking help from The Hearing Center if you are struggling with a hearing loss.

    I can hear my kids playing, I feel less tired, and I have more energy!

    My hearing loss started when I was just 10 years old as a result of multiple ear infections. I was really struggling to hear, and as a result, I had to have a lot of ear construction to save my hearing. I was told that I would never be able to hear certain tones again.
    For many years, I was living in a world of isolation and I believed that there was no way that I would get all of my hearing back. I had an opinion that hearing aids were for older people.
    When I first approached The Hearing Center, everyone was very warm and welcoming, and it did not matter how many questions I had. They answered them and were very patient with me.
    They fitted me with hearing aids and the results have been life-changing. I can hear my children. They can no longer come up behind me and scare me! I feel less tired, I have more energy, and as a result, I am losing weight.
    Getting help with my hearing from The Hearing Center was the best thing I ever did!

    The Hearing Center truly cares about helping me.

     

     

    I have visited many different hearing care providers over the years but none compare to the level of care I have received from Dr. LaBorde and the staff at The Hearing Center.
    I can honestly say they have changed my life by helping me to regain hearing clarity. I highly recommend them.
