Oticon Inc announced its support of the non-profit Homes for Our Troops with a generous donation to help veterans. Oticon Government Services Manager Cathy Van Evra presented a check for $5000 to Major General (USA, Ret.) Tim McHale, president of Homes for Our Troops, at a community welcome celebration for former Army Corporal Kevin McCloskey.
The event, held in Southhampton, Pa, is the site selected for construction of a mortgage-free home for McCloskey who was injured in Afghanistan and suffered the loss of both his legs, vision loss in his right eye, burns over his body, and a traumatic brain injury. The $5000 donation will support the construction of a barrier-free kitchen in the new home that will enable McCloskey to participate in and enjoy daily life with his family.
Oticon Inc is an official supplier of hearing devices for the more than 9 million US veterans who seek healthcare through the VA system. In addition to the Veterans Administration, Oticon supplies hearing solutions to the Department of Defense and other federal agencies within the 50 states, Washington, DC, and Puerto Rico.
