Carlyle Wimbish was the speaker at the Post D monthly meeting in South Boston. He is a member of the TPA national board of directors and gave a presentation on the Sounds of St. Louis fundraising campaign. Wimbish stated that there are many organizations that bring awareness to the deaf and hard of hearing community, but the TPA Hearing Trust is unique. Feeling called to make an impact nationally, TPA canvassed the United States to determine an area of great need. Hearing loss rose to the top as a critical issue facing many Americans that was not being addressed by other organizations. “TPA’s drive to help children and adults who are deaf or hard of hearing is the heart of who we are as an organization. Our generous members have banded together to ensure Americans have access to the services and technology they need to hear the sounds of life,” said Wimbish.
