L.L. Bean tote bag profits to help marathon bombing victims

The Associated Press

FREEPORT — Maine-based L.L. Bean has created a limited edition tote bag to benefit victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

The company says The One Fund Boston Tote is made from a tarp used to protect the Fenway Park infield and has The One Fund Boston logo on it. All profits go to The One Fund Boston, which helps bombing victims and their families.

L.L. Bean says it's produced 3,500 of the bags, which will sell for $49 each.

The bags go on sale Friday at select stores, including Bean's flagship store in Freeport and stores in Burlington, Dedham and Mansfield, Mass.
