Clinton Campbell, Troop 120 California, has completed his Eagle Scout project of collecting used in any condition hearing aids for Missouri School of the Deaf, Fulton.

Campbell expresses appreciation to everyone who participated. Various businesses from Boonville, Jamestown, Prairie Home and California allowed him to place the collection containers in their businesses. He also appreciates the paper and radio station for their assistance in his project.

Without the help from the community this could not have been a success. Campbell reminds everyone that the Missouri School of the Deaf, Fulton, is always in need of used hearing aids, which they have refurbished or parted out for use of replacement aids.

Audiologist Alison Burco, AuD, CCC-A, from the school wrote the following to Campbell: "Thank you for your generous donation of used hearing aids and for all your efforts to collect the old hearing aids. Donated behind the ear hearing aids can be cleaned and used as loaner hearing aids for children throughout the state of Missouri who cannot afford hearing aids of their own. The custom hearing aids that you collected can be sent in for salvage. The money collected from the salvaged hearing aids can be used for repairs for children and families who cannot afford to have their personal hearing aids fixed. You have done a great service for the under privileged children and families in the state of Missouri. I know I speak for them and myself when I say thank you for your hard work and determination."
