Baylor’s Helping Hands is a student-led organization that strives to assist mentally or physically disabled students who struggle with everyday tasks and activities. The organization raises money with the goal of helping fellow Baylor students and students in the greater Waco community with therapeutic, assistive or palliative measures.
Helping Hands Founder and President Taylor Ernst and Executive Board member Gabby Walters recently sent “helping hands” to G.W. Carver Middle School to donate a set of hearing aids for a hearing-impaired student. Prior to receiving the hearing aids, this student used an FM system to amplify sound and learn in the classroom.
The generous donation of the sleek and sophisticated $3,000 hearing aids enables the student to hear without the need of sign language, lip reading, or other forms of amplification.
