MILWAUKEE - Though we don't live in Boston, there are ways all of us can help victims and offer support after the tragedy at the Boston Marathon.

- Blood donations
Thanks to the generosity of many donors, the American Red Cross is reporting they currently have enough blood stocked up to help victims in Boston, but they still urge people to donate.

- Salvation Army
The Salvation Army is providing support to survivors and first responders.  They're offering mobile kitchens near the Boston Marathon finish line, and they will need to purchase more food and beverages.

If you know any information about the bombing, know someone who was there, and may have seen something involved with the tragedies, please call 1-800-494-TIPS.

“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, "Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” - Fred Rogers
