On behalf of the entire team at Rockport, we would like to extend our sincerest thoughts and deepest sympathies to all of those affected by the senseless acts of violence that took place during the Boston Marathon. This unthinkable tragedy took place on Patriots’ Day, one of the most celebrated days in Boston.
Although our corporate office is not located in the heart of Boston, many of our employees, partners and customers live and work there. Boston and the surrounding areas are a strong, tight knit community – one that we are proud to call our home. With one of our stores located on Newbury Street in Boston, which was close to the Marathon route, we were able to assist multiple people leaving the Marathon area through the store’s back door, as well as provide a safe haven for one individual in need of serious medical attention.
To aid in recovery efforts, Rockport will match donations made in-store to The One Fund Boston, Inc., dollar for dollar, up to $10,000. Please see a sales associate in-store for details.
Our thoughts are with everyone affected by this tragedy. We mourn for the loss of life and for the many people who were injured. We will grieve together, but together we are stronger.
