WEST SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

The Big Y is helping recovery efforts in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan.

Representatives from Big Y presented a check for $40,000 to members of the Pioneer Valley Red Cross.

The money comes from donations from Big Y customers and employees.

Rick Lee of the Pioneer Valley Chapter of the Red Cross said the donation comes at a much needed time.

"Red Cross was able to provide food for 750,000 people in the Philippines, clean water for 600,000 and medical supplies for 55,000," said Lee.

The donations came from Big Y stores in both Massachusetts and Connecticut.
