Dr. Larry Otwell wants to do good for others as Christmas comes near, so heâ€™s looking to give away a set of hearing aids or two.
Otwell has a practice in Marianna and is prepared to give the hearing aids to people who canâ€™t afford them. Anyone in need of hearing aids without the means to afford so can write a paragraph or so explaining their circumstances and mail the letter to Otwellâ€™s office at 4297 3rd Avenue in Marianna, zip code 32466.
The ideal recipient would be someone who is â€œdeserving,â€ according to Otwell. Details on financial status are not necessary with applications.
â€œIâ€™d like to get it to them before Christmas,â€ he said.
The hearing aids are described by Otwell as â€œbrand-newâ€ and in good quality. A hearing assessment will be done on the chosen recipient before the hearing aids are given away.
â€œThis is the time to give back,â€ he said.
Otwell has a practice in Chipley as well and is open to giving away hearing aids to two people in the region.
â€œWe want to take care of our local people first,â€ he said.
