This August the St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf will be celebrating their 175th anniversary of helping children who are hearing impaired.
St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf teaches children who are deaf to listen, speak, and read. The organization serves nearly 500 kids each year through a variety of programs: internet therapy, early intervention, pediatric audiology, and traditional school programs in St. Louis, MO and Indianapolis, IN.
This school works hard to help anyone with and without cochlear implants reach their fullest potential and be able to go to whatever school they want.
People come from all over the nation to have their children attend St. Joseph Institute. The institute also works through their internet therapy program, ihear, to reach other children, schools, and families to help people throughout the nation. The Institute continues to do incredible work for countless people, and now its time for you to help as they celebrate such their 175th birthday.
The more you help, the more they can help others. A couple ways you can get involved are:
- If you are in St. Louis you can give 175 Minutes of Service in honor of 175 years! On August 18th get a group of family members or friends together to work around the grounds of St. Joseph Institute. For every 175 minutes you give, you save the Institute about $63, which goes to helping more kids.
- Host a fundraiser! Any kind you want, anywhere you want, and donate the proceeds to the children who need it at the St. Joseph Institute.
- The last thing you can do is quick and easy, but so helpful! Just 175 seconds of virtual service. You can like St. Joseph Institute for the Deaf on Facebook, follow them on twitter, and post about all the awesome things that are going on to help spread the word.
