CORPUS CHRISTI - The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Center is celebrating the opening of their new expansion today. Mueller Inc., a Texas-based company, has held a competition every year for the past 5 years. The Deaf and Hard of Hearing Center won this year's "Helping-Hand" award which funded their expansion.
Over the past three days, 40 volunteers and construction workers got up at the crack of dawn to build a 4,000 square foot expansion in just three days. Plans for the new addition include counseling, classrooms and resources that come in handy for the hard of hearing.
The center plans to have a dedication ceremony today at 11:00 to celebrate the new project.
