How we got involved
Jeff Davis, owner of The Ready Store, attended an event where Justin spoke about being deaf in such a musically famous family. Jeff has a son who is also hearing impaired and after hearing Justin share his own story, Jeff wanted to join his cause!“I know how hard that can be on families,” Jeff said. “When we found out our son had hearing loss, it was a difficult thing to deal with. How was that going to affect his life?
“Thanks to organizations like the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund, kids will be able to get the help they need. That’s why we are so passionate about helping such a good cause like this.”
Research has shown that the younger the child’s age when receiving a hearing device, the easier it will be for him or her to learn to hear and speak in the future.
The Ready Store is proud to be a founding sponsor of the Olive Osmond Hearing Fund. We are excited to assist in giving the gift of hearing to children in need.
