Partnering with Redux, offering free drying services for veterans’ hearing devices
INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Nov. 5, 2020) – Easterseals Crossroads, a local nonprofit organization providing disability services, is hosting a media day to preview the “Remembering Our Fallen” from Indiana exhibit from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. recognizing Veterans Day, November 11, at Easterseals Crossroads, located at 4740 Kingsway Drive in Indianapolis.
“Remembering Our Fallen” is a touring photographic memorial honoring Indiana’s military who have fallen from The War on Terror since September 11, 2011. The exhibit includes both military and personal photos honoring the Hoosier men and women who have lost their lives for our country. Per CDC guidelines, all media guests visiting the memorial are required to provide and wear a cloth face covering or mask. Once conditions allow, the exhibit is scheduled to tour monthly throughout Indiana.
“Our hope for the Indiana exhibit is that people will never take their freedom for granted and know they are being protected at all costs,” said Buzz Smith, community outreach coordinator for veteran services at Easterseals Crossroads. “Hoosiers should feel safer knowing there are many more of these heroes all around the world who have given up everything so we can feel safe at home.”
Indianapolis-based Redux is partnering with Easterseals Crossroads to host the preview of this Indiana exhibit. Veterans in attendance through the Easterseals Crossroads veteran team will experience Redux’s patented technology that completely removes moisture from hearing devices in just 15 minutes. Hearing injury is the top service-related medical issue for veterans, and many veterans wear hearing devices as a result. It can take 25 to 30 days for a veteran’s hearing device to be repaired.
“When a person cannot hear properly, they may feel disconnected, isolated and even depressed,” said Reuben Zielinksi, Redux president and co-founder. “Our drying technology is particularly useful for veterans because it quickly and effectively improves the performance of their hearing aids.”
During the exhibit preview, Redux representatives will demonstrate the drying process with hearing aids, phones and tablets. Redux is currently planning similar drying events for veterans in conjunction with the future touring of the “Remembering Our Fallen” exhibit throughout Indiana. Please follow Redux on Facebook and LinkedIn to receive updates about those events.
Bruce Schnaith, vice president of workforce development at Easterseals Crossroads, and members from the veteran team will also be available to speak about the services available to veterans at Easterseals Crossroads.
“We made a conscious decision to expand and grow services to veterans, and that was in response to the ever-growing need of service men and women returning home from active duty. As they’re reintegrating back into civilian life, many veterans experience tremendous barriers and challenges,” Schnaith said. “The services we provide at Easterseals Crossroads assist veterans getting back to work but also with other initiatives, such as housing, education, health care and other types of services.”
