Thousands offering Boston marathoners, families shelter

After the bombing of the Boston Marathon, thousands of Boston residents began offering runners and their families a place to stay.

A Google document lists thousands of people who are opening their homes to those who may not be able to go home.

We have space in our apt for 4 people, or a family who needs a place to stay

In the Jamaica Plain area with my roommate (both of us are young professionals). So sorry this has happened, will do anything we can. Please contact if you need a place to stay, we can accommodate one or two people.

I will come pick up anyone who needs a place to stay. I have a spare bedroom with a queen sized bed. I am located about 15 minutes from the Franklin MBTA stop and 20 minutes from the Providence airport. I will do whatever I can.

Three people were killed and more than 170 injured in the bombing.
