We are grieved by the unspeakable tragedy that occurred during the Boston Marathon on Monday and shocked by the senseless violence that prompted it.
Sovereign Bank and Santander Group join all those who love the city of Boston and its traditions, as well as the millions of concerned individuals across the country and around the world, in expressing our sorrow.
As Sovereign Bank's national headquarters, Boston holds a prominent place in the lives of my 8,900 colleagues, including many team members who ran in pursuit of their dreams and in the name of their loved ones.
Despite this time of sadness, we're confident that the spirit that has kept the Boston Marathon strong for the past 117 years will continue, and that ultimately, Boston will recover from this terrible wound.
As part of our road to recovery, Sovereign | Santander will make a contribution on behalf of those impacted to One Fund Boston. If you'd like to join us, you can donate by contacting:
