New Balance donates $1m to One Fund Boston

New Balance Athletic Shoe Inc. announced Monday a $1 million donation to One Fund Boston, the fund established by Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Governor Deval Patrick to support those directly affected by the Boston Marathon bombings.

New Balance, known for its athletic footwear and apparel, added that its own foundation will match contributions made to One Fund Boston by company employees.


“The events at the Boston Marathon shook the streets of Boston but not the spirit of our city,” New Balance’s executive vice president of administration, Anne Davis, said in a statement. “In the aftermath of this tragedy and the remarkable scenes of heroism and bravery, we have never been more proud to be a part of the landscape of Boston. Our thoughts and prayers are today and always will be with the victims of this tragedy.”

New Balance, which is based in Brighton, has a worldwide head count of about 4,000 employees. In 2012, it reported sales of $2.4 billion.
