The Norden Brothers Roofers Assistance has been set up to help brothers Paul and J.P. Norden, as well as Marc Fucarile, as fellow roofers. We encourage people in and out of the roofing industry to join us in assisting these victims of the Boston Marathon bombing in any way they can. We will be standing shoulder to shoulder with Paul, J.P. and Marc through recovery, rehabilitation, and transition back to a normal life.
As part of our ongoing efforts to assist fellow roofers Paul & JP Norden and Marc Fucarile, we will continue to update this page with the most current and correct information, as well as new developments. Any funds we list are specific to the Norden brothers and Marc Fucarile, and we encourage everyone to direct their efforts wherever you feel they are best placed.
Update December 6, 2013
-Marc has been traveling to Florida to meet with a specialist to qualify for Stem Cell Therapy. Their hope is that this Therapy will provide the healing needed to save his remaining severely injured leg.

Three Boston Marathon bombing survivors were touched when an NFL superstar reached out in the aftermath of the tragedy. Little did anyone know Ray Rice would draw life-changing inspiration of his own. See the NFL posting regarding Paul, JP and Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens.

To Whom It May Concern,
Good Morning. My name is Cheryl Vinci Hollander and I am assisting the Norden Family with fundraising efforts for JP and Paul. While perusing the internet I came across your website collecting funds for the Norden Brothers. The family is grateful for all the outpouring of support by all who knew them. Your website listed a few sites for donations to be sent to the boys and I wanted to share with you accounts specific for each of them.
StonehamBank has a few accounts for the victims of the Boston Marathon. JP and Paul have their own specific account that was established just this week by their family. This fund will ensure the brothers have funds for long term care and needs moving forward. Below please find such accounts.
Norden Brothers Benefit Fund – Boston Marathon Victims

The family of Marc Fucarile has set up an account specific for him set up with Stoneham Municipal Credit Union by his family.

In addition to the accounts listed above we have set up a Facebook page for JP and Paul and titled NORDEN BROTHERS – BOSTON MARATHON VICTIMS. You can follow their progress and post messages of support. It would be great to include their brothers in the roofing community.
A donation link has also been set up on GoFundMe: http://www.gofundme.com/2pfm04
