how you can help big y support
This October, the aisles of your local Big Y are awash in pink in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness. We are dedicating these 31 days to raising funds for our Partners of Hope program, which enables us to give much-needed assistance to local breast cancer organizations, hospitals and medical centers. Since 2007, we were able to raise more than $1.5 Million with your help. We offer many ways for you to help continue to support Partners of Hope — everything from purchasing pink ribbons and shopping bags to buying specific products in our departments.
BIG Y will donate 5¢ for each Big Y, Top Care, Full Circle, Simply Done, Paws Happy Life, Academix, Tippy Toes by TopCare and Domestix brand product* purchased between October 6 and 12. (*excluding random weight items)
From October 1 to 31, purchase a PARTNERS OF HOPE pink ribbon for $1 at any store to help breast cancer organizations throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts.
BIG Y will donate a portion of the proceeds from our Produce and Floral departments to breast cancer research, UP TO $20,000
Visit the Big Y Pharmacy to get your flu shot and we will donate $5 for breast cancer research, up to $5,000
All Month, We'll be selling SPECIAL EDITION PINK REUSABLE SHOPPING BAGS,
so you can go "pink" and "green" at the same time!
For every pound of Big Y All Natural Angus Beef, Big Y USDA Choice Beef and Big Y Smart Chicken products sold,
THE BIG Y BUTCHER SHOP WILL DONATE 10¢ for breast cancer research, up to $15,000.
