American Alarm and One Fund Boston, Inc.

Boston StrongAs a New-England based company, we at American Alarm were deeply saddened to learn of the tragic events that occurred during the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013. Needless to say, it hit close to home and our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected.

To do our small part, we held a special company-wide casual day for our employees to raise money for One Fund Boston, Inc. This fund was created by Boston Mayor Tom Menino and Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to raise money for those affected by these events.

Additionally, Attorney General Martha Coakley urged Boston citizens to be careful of fraudulent charity sites, and only to donate to reputable organizations such as One Fund Boston, Inc.
