The employees and customers of Big Y recently donated $75,000 to help the Red Cross with its efforts to assist the victims of Superstorm Sandy.

Accepting the check was Rick Lee, director of the American Red Cross Pioneer Valley Chapter, from Donald D'Amour, CEO Big Y.

Seen here are D'Amour, Michele D'Amour, Lee, Betti Boggis Big Y director of Customer Service and Mike Messer, store director for the West Springfield Big Y World Class Market.

Messer said the drive to collect the amount took three weeks.
