Donations can be made via coin-counting machines.

People in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine, and Connecticut can make donations to a fund to help victims of the Boston Marathon bombing and their families via TD Bank's (TD 1.31%) coin-counting machines.

All service fees will be waived for donations made through the bank's Penny Arcade through May 12, as part of TD Bank's "Coins for Caring" campaign. Customers and non-customers can take advantage of this giving mechanism. The money goes to The One Boston Fund. Donations can also be made at TD Bank locations that do not have Penny Arcades. Additionally, TD Bank donated $50,000 to The One Fund Boston independent of its "Coins for Caring" program.

The One Fund Boston was created by Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino to provide aid to victims of the April 15bombing. According to reports, in its first week, the fund raised $20 million, including $5 million from individual donors.

TD Bank is based on Toronto, Canada, but has more than 1,300 locations along the East Coast of the U.S.
