|04.16.13 at 7:46 pm ET|
The Patriots announced Tuesday night the Kraft Family will match up to $100,000 in donations made toward relief efforts in the wake of the Marathon bombings.
The Patriots and Revolution Charitable Foundations will collect donations online, with funds earmarked to assist with victim recovery. Donations can be made at Patriots.com/donate or RevolutionSoccer.net/donate (please note ‘Boston Marathon’ in field provided). The Kraft family will match the first $100,000 in donations.
‘We are grieving for the victims of this senseless act,’ said Robert Kraft. ‘It is not lost on us that this tragedy occurred on Patriots Day, at an event where our own staff and their families were participating, and where thousands of runners were raising money for charities with which we are associated either through our Foundation, our alumni or our friends. Our focus is on helping those in need and beginning the healing process. We hope by matching donations we will encourage more people to give.’
