Community Kitchen of North Iowa

November 11, 2016 – MASON CITY – Hearing Associates donated $13,800 to the Community Kitchen of North Iowa Wednesday evening.

“This week, we had the opportunity to give back to the community as a staff. We were humbled and blessed by the people we were able to serve at Community Kitchen for their supper meal,” says Hearing Associates owner and audiologist, Stuart Trembath.

“Serving at Community Kitchen was a great experience,” continues Mr. Trembath. “It felt even better that we were able to partner with our patients who purchased hearing instruments during the months of June, July and August. For each hearing aid purchased, we set aside a portion of the proceeds to help Community Kitchen.”

Hearing Associates saw an influx in appointments during their charity drive, and noted that members of the community planned their hearing instrument purchases in the summertime to support Community Kitchen.

Eight members of the Hearing Associates staff, and Leigh Trembath, Mr. Trembath’s spouse, volunteered at the event, who served supper from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Before the meal, the team prepped all food that was donated that day. After, Mr. Trembath (right) handed a donation for $13,800 to Community Kitchen of North Iowa director, Amanda Ragan (left).
