The donation is a portion of Big Y’s 10th Annual Partners of Hope Campaign which raised $230,000 in 2016 at its stores throughout Connecticut and Massachusetts to distribute to individual communities and charities in the communities they serve for breast cancer related screenings, education and treatment.

“This generous gift is a much needed contribution to this critical fund for women in Northwest Connecticut. We are extremely grateful for the support Big Y has provided to help local women facing the challenges of breast cancer.” said Tammy Rouleau, R.N.

The Pink Rose Program provides coordinated access to services related to breast cancer patients by offering one on one education and support by a certified R.N. Nurse Navigator.

“Thank you for all you do for awareness, research, and support of Breast Cancer. We know that both our employees and our customers appreciate your efforts.” said Big Y Torrington Store Director Tracy Lambertson.
