PETAL PUSHERS is CareFirst’s largest community fundraiser.  All proceeds support local CareFirst programs and services throughout Chemung, Schuyler and Steuben Counties.

The 2021 sale dates are April 12 – May 3.

Geraniums come in five vibrant colors: Bright Red, Patriot White, Salmon Frills, Cherry Rose, and Lavender Blue. Each 4.5″ potted plant is just $4.

We depend on our volunteer sellers to take geranium orders for CareFirst and we need YOU to make this year a huge success! Are you willing to take orders at your workplace, church, or on your favorite social?

This year we are looking to expand our sales in all towns across our three county area… Corning, Elmira, Watkins Glen, Hornell, Horseheads, Montour Falls, Hammondsport, Big Flats, Wellsburg, Wayland, Bath, Millport and beyond!

If you are interested in selling or purchasing geraniums, please contact CareFirst at 607-962-3100 or development@carefirstny.org.

As our world and local community confronts the COVID-19 pandemic, the health and safety of our patients, families, and staff is always our top priority. Our Leadership Team is meeting daily to remain on the forefront of this crisis, regularly receiving updates from federal, state, and local agencies, and is responding to all recommendations and directives as appropriate. Though response protocols are rapidly evolving, we assure you that CareFirst is committed to continuing our provision of extraordinary support and care to anyone receiving our services.

Communication is important to maintaining stability and a sense of calm during this pandemic. Therefore, we encourage you to read a letter to all of our hospice families from CareFirst’s Chief Executive Officer, Jeff Yockavitch. 

Help stop the spread of coronavirus in our community!

This is an emerging, rapidly evolving situation and CDC will provide updated information as it becomes available. Go to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website for the latest specifics on COVID-19.
