Finger Lakes Textiles (FLT) is a remarkable place where a workforce composed of individuals with all levels of ability work side by side to produce more than 1 million pieces of cold weather headwear each year. Its largest customer is the United States Armed Forces, which means that each and every piece is made to the most exacting standards. Every item is completely American made; even the wool comes from sheep that are “All American” too! What is even more important is that a percentage from the sale of each and every cap, hat, balaclava and gaiter is used to support vital programs and services for individuals with developmental and other disabilities.
FLT is a part of Arc of Seneca Cayuga, which is the largest provider of such services in the Finger Lakes Region of New York State. This means that when you make a purchase you are not only getting a product of the highest quality. You are also helping to provide vital services, such as autism care, a clinic serving rural areas, a lakeside summer camp, physical and vocational therapy, assisted living, day service sites and even a performing arts program. Thank you for your purchase and give yourself a pat on the back for supporting a great cause.
