A check for $212,000 has been donated to Boston’s One Fund, which was set up to help victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, officials said.
Sharon Donaghue, vice president of operations at HealthBridge Management, presented the check Monday to Boston Police Commissioner Edward F. Davis, the company said in a statement.
HealthBridge held a “Boston Strong” fundraiser in June where donations were collected from the more than 400 attendees. HealthBridge also raised donations at its nursing and rehab centers, sister facilities, and through its vendors and partners, the statement said.
This was one of the largest checks “the city of Boston was honored to receive,” Davis said.
The One Fund has raised $69.8 million so far, and it is continuing to receive donations. In June, the fund distributed about $60 million to the survivors of the attacks. The One Fund is now trying to figure out how to address victims’ long-term needs with the remaining donations, according to its website.Melissa can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @Melissa__Hanson
