Funds raised will support residents of communities affected by Hurricane Ian.
To help those affected by Hurricane Ian, Big Y has partnered with the American Red Cross to collect donations for those affected by the disaster. Through Wednesday, October 19, Big Y customers and employees will have the opportunity to donate to American Red Cross Disaster Relief at all Big Y locations in Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Donation containers for cash donations will be available at all Big Y checkouts, with the option to donate by credit or debit at checkout or through the myExpress Checkout app. Funds raised will support residents of communities affected by Hurricane Ian.
“The Red Cross is grateful for the support of Big Y and its customers,” said Nia Rennix, executive director of the Midwest Massachusetts chapter. “Every eight minutes, on average, the Red Cross responds to an emergency in the community. It is our volunteers, partners and supporters who make this work possible.
Big Y, its customers and its employees have a strong tradition of supporting those in need through the American Red Cross. The 12+ year partnership has raised more than $1.7 million to support international and domestic disasters.
“We are grateful to our customers and employees for their generosity in helping families affected by the hurricane,” said Charles L. D’Amour, President and CEO of Big Y.
Big Y Foods, Inc. operates locations throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut including supermarkets, Table & Vine Fine Wines and Liquors and Big Y Express gas and convenience stores with over 10,000 employees.
