In 1990 the Goodwill of the Finger Lakes' mission, Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired (ABVI), began manufacturing self-stick notes through a partnership with 3M. We have since expanded our operations to produce office products, janitorial supplies, workplace safety solutions and uniforms for the US Military.
The partnership propelling our mission statement of providing empowerment and opportunities to those with barriers to independence.
