Goodwill Industries International and Goodwill Industries of the Finger Lakes in Rochester, New York, are hosting an AgrAbility informational booth at the New York Empire Days Farm Show and Exhibition in Seneca Falls, New York on August 8-10. The information booth is being sponsored in cooperation with the New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) in the Health and Safety Center exhibit hall.

The Empire Days Farm Show is one of the largest farm events on the east coast and this will be an excellent way to showcase the tools and resources AgrAbility has to offer farmers as well as the relationship between AgrAbility and Goodwill.
