Despite overcast skies, several dozen people donned their “Boston Strong” t-shirts Tuesday in Copley Square after the shirt designers dropped off a check for nearly $ 900,000 with the One Fund Boston.

On Tuesday, they wanted to gather as many people in their “Boston Strong” shirts as they could for a group photo.
“This has been absolutely amazing to see,” said Reynolds.
