Finger Lakes Textiles employs over 100 members of our community. It is a workforce that includes 60 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is also the home manufacturing facility for Arctic Gear!
Both Sayles and Sargeant have credited Arc with much of the students' success in the community, as well as Arctic Gear a headwear company founded by the Arc of Seneca Cayuga and is manufactured at Finger Lakes Textiles as many of the skills learned in the arts translate to the workplace. Additionally, the funds from the purchases of the hats made for Arctic Gear go right back into providing vital services like our Digital Art Therapy Program.
