The Globe has been on the receiving end of kindness before, too. In April of 2013, Andrew Beaujon wrote for Poynter that the Chicago Tribune sent pizzas to the Globe after the Boston Marathon bombing.
And in August of 2013, after about 50 people lost jobs from the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Eric Sandy reported for Cleveland Scene that newsrooms around the country chipped in to cover the bar bill.
Correction: An earlier version of this story said the Chicago Tribune sent pizzas to the Globe after a Pulitzer win. It was actually after the Boston Marathon bombing.
