Kelly McKinney, a sewing operator at Industries of the Blind (IOB), an AbilityOne-participating nonprofit in Greensboro, North Carolina, assembles U.S. Army physical training pants. The U.S. Army is just one of the many customers that IOB supports through its assembly services offerings as part of the AbilityOne Program. To diversify her skills and support her career growth, McKinney is also trained on other machines to sew a range of different products, such as fire-retardant combat trousers.
