BOSTON (WGGB) — Two funds have been established to help raise money for victims of Monday’s bombings and their families

At an afternoon press conference, Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Mass. Governor Deval Patrick announced the creation of OneFundBoston.org.

Earlier in the day, representatives of the law enforcement unions in Boston disclosed that they had created the Boston Fire Responder’s Fund, from which 100 percent of the proceeds will go to the bombing victims and their families.
