2. Richard Family Fund
A fund for the family of Martin Richard, the 8-year-old boy who was killed in the bombing — donate in person at Salem Five banks in Massachusetts, or by mail at Salem Five, Attn: Richard Family Fund, 210 Essex St., Salem, MA 01970.
9. Donate blood — later.
The Red Cross says it has enough blood now, but the blood supply may need to be replenished later, in the wake of such a large emergency. Blood donations tend to drop in summer, anyway, so the coming months will be a good time — if the marathon bombing made you want to donate, consider doing so anyway. The Red Cross has a tool to help you find where to donate.
