Spark is a program created as a way to show our support and appreciation to the non-profits and agencies that have done so much for our communities in various ways.

This is our way of thanking them!

January 2024
Our SPARK crew volunteered at the Food Bank of the Southern Tier for our January SPARK initiative. We helped sort and repack food and grocery items for distribution to those in need throughout the Southern Tier. We also assisted with their backpack program where we filled 1,160 bags with meals for families in our community!
February 2024
The First Heritage SPARK crew partnered with Meals on Wheels of Chemung County Animeals. This program began when Meals on Wheels learned that some of their clients were sharing their food with their pets and not getting the much-needed nutrition themselves. First Heritage collected dog and cat food to be split up and delivered to clients and help them feed their four-legged friends!
March 2024
For this month's SPARK initiative, we supported the Arnot Health Children's Miracle Network Hospitals by volunteering our time and delivering blankets and mobile phone charging kits. These items were delivered to the NICU, Pediatrics, Labor & Delivery, for parents and families. Thank you to the CMN for having us today!
