If you're wanting to help in the aftermath of the Monday afternoon bombings near the finish line of the 117th annual Boston Marathon, eat out in Boston tomorrow.

Several Boston-area restaurants have joined together to launch a fundraising initiative that will donate a percentage of the day's sales to victims of the bombing tragedy via the Greg Hill Foundation, a longtime Boston charity focused on responding to the needs of families affected by tragedy. This translates to between 10 and 25 percent of sales.

The list of participating restaurants is growing but so far includes:

62 Restaurant and Wine Bar, Salem

Bella Luna Restaurant & Milky Way Lounge, Jamaica Plain

Blue on Highland, Needham

Bondir, Cambridge

Cafeteria, on Newbury Street in Boston

China Blossom, North Andover

Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse, on Arlington Street in Boston

Grafton Street, Cambridge, MA

Harvest, Cambridge

Olé Mexican Grill, Cambridge

PARK Restaurant & Bar, Cambridge

Piattini Wine Café, on Newbury Street in Boston

Ristorante Olivio, Arlington

Russell House Tavern, Cambridge

Salvatore's Restaurants, three locations: Boston (Northern Avenue and Washington Street) and Medford)

Temple Bar, Cambridge

Tryst Restaurant, Arlington

Tuscan Kitchen, Salem, New Hampshire
