Milford High senior helps Boston bombing victims
Mitchell Banuskevich is a Milford High school senior. He is also a member of St Patrick's Church in Milford. After the Boston Marathon bombings, he felt the need to help the victims. (COURTESY)
With the help of the American Red Cross, he is doing just that.
Banuskevich, who will be a senior at Milford High School in the fall, said he was working at his job at Market Basket when friends started texting him about the bombings during the Boston Marathon on April 15.
“It happened so close to us,” he said. “I had friends down there who witnessed it. I felt like I had an obligation to do something to help.”
Banuskevich said that he recalls vague memories of the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington, D.C., on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Boston Marathon bombings brought that feeling back, said Banuskevich, but this time he is old enough to do something to make a difference.
“I believe that every little bit helps,” said Banuskevich, “and it’s important that people don’t forget what happened.”
