The East Coast has a history of fierce rivalries, but when tragedy strikes it always proves to be a close knit and compassionate community. Yankee Stadium recently played a sweet song tribute to the Red Sox and now New Jersey's Packer Shoes are doing what they can to help out Beantown in the wake of the Marathon bombing tragedy.
Packer Shoes have announced that ALL proceeds from the sale of the New Balance Limited Edition Boston Marathon Collection will be donated to the Boys and Girls club of Dorchester. It's a tribute to Dorchester residents the Richard family – their 8-year-old son tragically perished and their daughter was severely injured during the blast. The charity sale runs from 3PM EST Thursday April 18 until Monday, April 22 from Packer Shoes online.
