NIAGARA FALLS - The First Niagara Foundation on Monday announced a $5,000 donation to the Isaiah 61 Project, a housing rehabilitation and job training program.

Under the faith-based program, vacant city homes are purchased cheaply, unemployed persons are given training in construction trades and when the homes are fixed up, they are sold to local low-income families.

The donation will be used to fund the program and to purchase building materials.
