All of us at NAIOP Massachusetts are saddened by the tragic events that occurred at the Boston Marathon on April 15. Times like these make us realize that Boston is basically a small town – it seems like we are all either connected directly, or by one degree of separation, from someone hurt in Monday’s explosions.
Governor Patrick and Mayor Menino announced the creation of One Fund Boston, which was established to provide assistance to those who were directly impacted by the tragedy. The local business community, including several NAIOP members, immediately stepped up to support the fund. We encourage the commercial real estate industry to show its support.

In addition, we’ve learned that Roseann Sdoia of National Development, a NAIOP Gavel Firm, was severely injured in the explosions. Her friend set up Roseann’s Recovery Fund, where you can donate towards her treatment and recovery expenses. Our thoughts are with Roseann and the many other victims hurt by this tragedy.
