What is HARP?
HARP stands for the Hearing Aid Recycling Program. It is a program based in Dallas that collects used hearing aids and distributes them to deaf and hard-of-hearing people that cannot afford to buy hearing aids.
How are the hearing aids distributed?
The hearing aids go to the Callier Center at the University of Texas at Dallas. The Callier Center then distributes the hearing aids to people who demonstrate a significant financial need.
Are the donations tax deductible?
Yes. All hearing aid donations to HARP are tax deductible under the Callier Center’s 501(c)(3) status.
How can I donate my used hearing aids?
The best way to donate is through the mail. Donations through the mail can come from anywhere in the United States. After contacting HARP, you will receive an envelope in the mail with a case to put the hearing aids in along with a pre-stamped, pre-addressed envelope. Simply put the hearing aids in the case, put the case in the envelope, and drop the envelope in the mail.
