A business that has called Penn Yan and Yates County home for more than 100 years made a huge contribution to aid in the recovery of last month's flooding. Michael Venuti is Communications Coordinator with Coach and Equipment Manufacturing. He tells us more about their donation.
Venuti said a goal of Coach and Equipment is to always give back to the community it serves.
Coach and Equipment has been manufacturing small-to-midsize buses in Penn Yan since 1895. If you are interested in making a contribution, you can mail a check payable to Yates Community Endowment Disaster Relief Fund to P.O. Box 311, Penn Yan, N.Y. 14527
