Hearing Loss in Minnesota

Approximately one in five Minnesotans (20%) is deaf or hard of hearing – more than 1.1 million people. Every year, about 200 babies are born deaf or hard of hearing. By age 65, one in three people has hearing problems and by 75, half of the population is deaf or hard of hearing. Studies have linked untreated hearing loss to stress, anger, depression, fatigue, social withdrawal, reduced job performance and impaired memory.


Donate Your Hearing Aids

Your tax-deductible donation will help support the Hearing Aid Bank of Minnesota (HAB-MN) a used hearing aid collection program of the Sight & Hearing Association (SHA), a Minnesota-based nonprofit 501(c)(3) that was founded in 1939 and is dedicated to preventing the needless loss of vision and hearing in all Minnesotans. HAB-MN collects donations of used hearing aids and the salvaged value helps further the hearing loss prevention programs of SHA, by supporting our mobile hearing screening program for children and adults or SHA’s hearing conservation education and awareness projects.


Thank you for considering a donation of your used hearing aids to HAB-MN.



Please DO NOT mail any accessories (batteries, chargers, assistive TV products, microphones, remote controls, cleaning products, cords, receivers, etc.), as we are unable to distribute them, at this time.


We gladly accept your used hearing aids only and ask that you carefully package them in a padded envelope or box and mail to:


Hearing Aid Bank of Minnesota

c/o Sight & Hearing Association

PO Box 40009

Saint Paul, MN  55104


If you would like an acknowledgment of your donation for tax purposes, please include your name and address inside the package or box you are mailing to us.
