NILES, IL--Shure Incorporated announced that it will again donate $50,000 this year to four organizations as part of the Shure Listen Safe program. The four organizations are: Columbia College, Hearing Education and Awareness for Rockers (H.E.A.R.), The House Ear Institute (HEI), and the National Hearing Conservation Association (NHCA) Scholarship Foundation.
"Noise induced hearing loss is a serious health problem that can be prevented, but people need to be aware of the risk factors and preventive measures that can be taken in order to minimize their risk," said Shure president and CEO Sandy LaMantia. "Our donations to these four organizations will help them to continue their important public education and research initiatives, which we hope will help save the hearing of many."
In addition to making these donations, Shure Listen Safe will promote hearing conservation by providing free hearing screenings and distributing hearing protection devices at professional audio industry trade shows, music conferences and festivals, and to Shure's employees.
