FARMINGTON, CT - Officials from Big Y World Class Markets presented a check for $40,000 to the American Red Cross to support Red Cross relief efforts in the Philippines in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan.

Funds for Red disaster relief were raised through a special in-store customer and employee donation program in all Big Y Connecticut and Massachusetts stores. The community and employee donations along with additional support from Big Y resulted in a donation of $40,000.00, which will be support of the ongoing relief efforts in the Philippines, where a multi-national team is working to support the immediate needs and recovery plans of people affected by the typhoon.

Donald D’Amour, Chief Executive Officer, of Big Y Foods presented the contribution to American Red Cross Connecticut Chapter Senior Director of Resource Development Chris Donovan at the West Hartford Big Y World Class Market on December 17.

“We are grateful to the Big Y family and their customers for making this generous gift to help the people of the Philippines,” Donovan said. Big Y World Class Market, its employees and customers have always been quick to step up to help neighbors in need, near or far.”

Thanks to the public’s generous support, the Red Cross has been able to provide food, shelter, relief supplies and comfort to thousands of people in the Philippines. Big Y, its customers and employees have a strong tradition of supporting those in need. Past initiatives include campaigns to support both international and domestic disaster relief efforts.
