The One Fund Boston, the charity fund for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, has announced its final day to send in donations.
The final day to send in donations for marathon victims will be this Monday.

Jim Gallagher, President of the One Fund Boston said in a statement, “Now, after over a year and a half of operations we have completed our task. In this season of hope, it is our wish that a fund of this nature is never needed again.”
So far The One Fund Boston has distributed nearly $80 million to individuals, businesses and community organizers.
