Big Y Donates over $215,000 to Local Breast Cancer Groups

In order to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer, all Big Y Supermarkets donated proceeds from their October initiative “Partners of Hope” to 29 local breast cancer support groups throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut. This month-long program reflects the partnership, commitment and support of breast cancer awareness and research that are so vital for many. The results have finally been tabulated and in October, Big Y raised $215,742.00 which was donated to the following local organizations: Protect Our Breasts in Amherst, The Pink Way in Ludlow; Survivor Journeys in Longmeadow; Cancer-Connection and Cooley Dickinson Hospital, both in Northampton; Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield; and Baystate Health Foundation and Mercy Medical Center, both in Springfield.
