It’s been a difficult time for so many families, and we need to help each other. For those of you who are wondering how you can help, I’ve put together a list of ongoing efforts you can join in order to show your love for Boston and to help those in West Texas.

Furthermore, there are links for those who wish to continue their support of families impacted by gun violence, and there are links to assist those families who are still struggling after Hurricane Sandy.

If you know of an organization or a community effort that needs help in these efforts or another worthy cause, please leave a post in the comments section for all readers to respond. Thank you.
