A Lockport foundation is donating more than $7,000 to the Red Cross to help cover costs incurred during the August industrial fire.
The Grigg-Lewis Foundation announced the gift on Tuesday.
More than 45 Red Cross workers -- including 36 volunteers -- stepped up to help when a fire broke out at High Tread International August 10.
Those workers opened a shelter at North Park Junior High, served nearly 400 meals and snacks, and used two Emergency Response Vehicles to distribute nearly 3,500 clean-up and comfort kits to families impacted by the fire.
In addition to Red Cross workers, more than 200 firefighters from more than a dozen fire companies responded to the fire at the tire recycling plant.
Hundreds of residents in a nine-street area were evacuated from their homes for 48 hours.
Investigators said they believe the fire was intentionally set by several juveniles, one of whom, 14-year-old Joseph Phillips, was killed in the fire.
Niagara County officials are currently reviewing the incident and will determine whether or not charges will be filed.
