TORRINGTON — Charlotte Hungerford Hospital’s Pink Rose Program will benefit from the proceeds of Torrington’s Big Y community bag program during Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October.
The hospital’s Pink Rose Program will receive a $1 a for every reusable $2.50 Community Bag purchased at the Big Y located at 504 Winsted Rd., unless otherwise directed by the customer through the giving tag attached to the bag.
The goal is to make a difference in the communities where shoppers live and work.
“We wish to thank our friends at Big Y for their commitment to fighting breast cancer in their community and for contributing to ways to help preserve the planet from excess waste.” said Tim LeBouthillier, director of community development at CHH.
The Pink Rose Program is supported by Charlotte Hungerford Hospital and local fundraising events and was established at CHH in 1998 to provide free mammograms and other diagnostic services to women in our region who are uninsured or underinsured.
The CHH Pink Rose Fund supports educational outreach and screenings to assure that the women of northwest Connecticut have comprehensive, coordinated access to breast cancer and other health services, programs, and treatments.
Early detection through mammography has been found to be the safest and most effective way of finding breast cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages.
