ONEONTA – Cornell Cooperative Extension is offering free hand sanitizer and face masks to farmers through a partnership with the New York State Dept. of Ag, and Markets.
“Hand sanitizer and face coverings are available for farms and agribusinesses to help ensure a clean, safe local food system this season,” says David Cox, Ag Program Leader at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Schoharie and Otsego Counties. “We have ample quantities to handle the anticipated needs for the farm community, but registration is required to ensure a smooth distribution.”
SCHENEVUS – Peter Oberacker’s Form Tech Solutions lab has spent the week producing hand-sanitizers, and will begin distributing 4-7 Monday afternoon at the Schenevus Fire Department.
“We’ll have a tent outside the first department,” said Oberacker, who is running the state Senate on the Republican line to succeed Jim Seward, R-Milford. “You can drive up, and we’ll hand out one free bottle per household while supply lasts.”
A second distribution is planned 4-7 p.m. Wedneday, April 15, also at the fire department.
