We’re Passionate About Serving Our Community

Helping individuals in our community achieve better hearing is how we make a living, but making sure that those around us enjoy hearing what they love and living an active, independent, and rewarding lifestyle drives us to serve our community.

Watching those around us become more active and independent, restore relationships, and overcome various critical mental and physical health problems thanks to better hearing is what motivates our team of experts to get out of bed in the morning. Along with improving ourselves as professionals by continuing to educate ourselves on the latest technologies and techniques in the hearing care industry, we work to grow personally by giving back to our community.

We Support the Farwell4Hire and Rangers Reach Campaign

As a family owned and operated business, we recognize the importance of supporting each other through good and bad times. Waterloo Region, Wellington County, and Norfolk County have supported us since we opened our doors in 1950. We return the favor by giving back as much as we can, whenever we can.

One way we give back is by making annual donations to the Farwell4Hire campaign. The campaign was started by Mike Farwell in 2014. Mike lost two sisters to cystic fibrosis early in his life and wanted to come up with a way to help others avoid the same loss.

Giving back, especially when it’s combined with our passion for hockey, participating in Rangers Reach Farwell4Hire 50/50 draws with the Kitchener Rangers Hockey Club is another enjoyable way we support the Waterloo Region.

Mike hires himself out to do odd jobs for money during the month of May, and then donates his earnings to the Cystic Fibrosis foundation. Since its inception, the Farwell4Hire campaign has donated more than $600,000 to CF, and we’re pleased to be co-contributors with Mike in his efforts.

We Encourage You to Shop Local

Another way we give back to our community is by shopping locally and encouraging others to do the same. One of the most devastating things you’ll see in any community are boarded-up windows and ‘Closed’ signs on the door.

Supporting local businesses keeps them open and the community thriving and alive with energy. Strong local businesses contribute to job growth and lower unemployment rates, making our communities stronger and more attractive to visitors and investors, not to mention that the money you spend in your community continues to circulate in your community and comes back to you in goods, services, and income potential.

We see our communities as one big happy family, supporting each other, and helping everyone grow.

Educating Our Community About Hearing Loss

Hearing loss probably isn’t a common topic of conversation in clubs, coffee shops, and restaurants throughout our communities. So, getting information about the connection between hearing loss and cognitive decline, balance issues, and other negative mental and physical health problems isn’t something you’re going to hear about “on the street.”

To make sure that parents, teachers, employers, and geriatric care providers understand the negative effects of hearing loss on their lifestyle and quality of life, our audiology experts at Arnold Hearing Centres make ourselves available at schools, clubs, health fairs, businesses, and organizations to help spread the word about how better hearing health leads to a better health and a better quality of life.

Contact us at the Guelph, Kitchener, Simcoe, or Waterloo location nearest you in order to learn more about the various ways we’re willing and able to help give back to your community.
