I won’t say much other than I feel sad. But I also feel hopeful because during times like these, people rise up and help those who need it. Tragedies test us, but we’re strong enough to overcome them. Here are a few ways we can help those who need us most now:
- The Red Cross says the best way to help right now is to get in touch with loved ones through its Safe And Well Listings. The organization is not asking for blood donations at this time.
- The Salvation Army is offering food, beverages and crisis counseling to survivors and first responders. Find out how you can get involved here.
- Some marathon runners are stranded in Boston and in need of places to stay. Find out how you can offer housing here.
- Anyone with info about the incident can call 1-800-494-TIPS.
