On Wednesday, 11 clients of Community Services for the Developmentally Disabled and 2 of their caretakers toured Confer Plastics. CSDD assists developmentally disabled and their families in achieving their highest level of independent living while enabling their fullest participation in society. Their website is: https://www.csdd.net/
Our visitors were allowed to see our factory in operation and hear about careers in manufacturing, light assembly, warehousing and distribution that are available across Western New York.
Confer Plastics provided almost a dozen tours to clients of various disability agencies over the past year and a quarter. This uptick in visits is in response to sheltered workshops across the country being forced to close by various levels of government. The disabled, their families, and their service providers are now facing great unknowns as they enter the general workforce and it is hoped plant tours such as ours help them alleviate their fears and see what is available in the local economy.
