Hearing Care Activity for January 2019 to October

By Vicki Linnman | KEX Kids Fund Executive Director

Dear Donors,

Thank you GlobalGiving donors for your generous support this year!  Several donors have set up recurring donations and we appreciate this ongoing support. Thank you, too, for helping us to continue to provide vision and hearing care for all eligible children requesting our help.  Our annual Thanksgiving Radio-A-Thon will take place Thanksgiving Weekend on KEX 1190 AM radio station.  See https://1190kex.iheart.com and search for KEX Kids Fund On Air Pledge Drive.

Our funds are kept in one account and are used for both of our Hearing and Vision Care programs.  

As of 9/30/2019 we have received $34,027.49.  Our hearing care expenses for so far this year were $24,301.02

 for hearing care for 33 children (around $650/child).  These children received services valued at over $37,000.  (4x our expenses)

We also added four counties in Oregon and Washington to our vision and hearing programs:  Crook County in Oregon to Vision Care and Lane County in Oregon to Hearing Care; Klickitat and Walla Walla Counties in Washington to Hearing Care so that we now serve children in 24 counties in Oregon and SW Washington. 

Our board member, Sherry Brown, is keeping the KEX Board updated on state funding changes and suggesting ways that the KEX Kids Fund can continue to serve children in need of hearing care services.  Glenda is helping us consider options for providing hearing care to needy children outside our current 24 county service area.  We currently have 26 audiologists in 13 locations supporting our hearing program.

Throughout the year we receive thank you notes and photos from our hearing care children. We attach copies of these items to our reports.  Thank you again for helping us to bring sound to needy children in Oregon and SW Washington.
