Sonic Innovations Inc has announced a donation of $35,492 made to the Armed Forces Foundation (AFF) during a check presentation with Sonic Innovations' President and COO Paul Wennerholm and AFF President and Executive Director Patricia Driscoll in Washington. The donation is the result of a program conducted by Sonic Innovations in cooperation with the AFF that began in July, in which the company pledged a donation of up to $50 to the foundation for every Velocity hearing instrument purchased through October 1.
"As a U.S.-based company, Sonic Innovations is strongly committed to improving the quality of life for US service men and women," said Sonic Innovations' Chairman and CEO Sam Westover. "Our armed forces personnel have given so much to this country and Sonic Innovations wanted to do something to recognize the sacrifices they have made on our behalf. Sonic Innovations is proud to make this donation to the Armed Forces Foundation."
Driscoll commented on the program stating, "It is partnerships with companies like Sonic Innovations that make it possible for the Armed Forces Foundation to carry out its mission to serve our men and women in uniform."
