In the days after the Marathon bombings, as the depths of the loss became clear, donations to The One Fund rushed in, a national outpouring of sympathy and solidarity.
And from vacant offices on the 14th floor of the Prudential Building, outfitted with a single folded table and some donated smartphones, organizers and about a dozen volunteers began the quiet work of managing the victim’s relief effort, which has now received more than $46 million.
