Sister Caritas Cancer Center Selected as Big Y Community Bag Program Beneficiary

SPRINGFIELD — Big Y is committed to raising awareness of the mission to end breast cancer. This October, nonprofits with a mission to give back to breast-cancer-related causes have been selected as beneficiaries in the Big Y Community Bag Program across all store locations.

The Big Y Community Bag Program, which launched in January 2019, is a reusable-bag program that facilitates community support with the goal to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.

The Sister Caritas Cancer Center at Mercy Medical Center was selected as the beneficiary of the program by store leadership at the Big Y stores located at 1180 Thorndike St. in Palmer and at 10 College Highway in Southampton. The Sister Caritas Cancer Center will receive a $1 donation every time a $2.50 reusable community bag is purchased at these locations in October, unless otherwise directed by the customer through the giving tag attached to the bag.
