At Unitron, “we care deeply” is one of our core values. Yes, we care deeply about hearing; this is the main focus of our business. But we also care deeply about — and want to make a difference in — the communities where we live and work. This is why we believe so strongly in giving back through a number of philanthropic initiatives.
Unitron Community Connection
Since 2010, Unitron with support from our Canadian customers, has raised $100,000 for the Lions Foundation of Canada’s Dog Guide Hearing Ear program. With these funds, 5 fully-trained hearing guide dogs have been given to those in need. A hearing guide dog has a positive impact not only the dog’s new owner, but their families, friends and co-workers.
Training Dog Guides in basic household manners and guiding skills costs about $20,000. Lions Foundation of Canada, the founder and major supporter of Dog Guides Canada, is a national charity that provides service to Canadians with a medical or physical disability in the areas of mobility, safety and independence. The Foundation provides fully trained dogs at no cost to the recipients.
Unitron is proud to support this great cause. To learn more about this program, visit the Lions Foundation of Canada Hearing Ear Dogs Program.
