Ever since the tragic fire, the community has been looking for ways to help those grieving families.

At all 75 Country Fair locations, 100 percent of the proceeds from coffee sold Tuesday will be donated to the victims families.

Organizers say it doesn't matter what size, location or time the coffee is purchased, just as long as it's Tuesday.

One woman told Erie News Now Tuesday it's the saddest cup of coffee she's ever bought.

"My family is coming out also to buy coffee," said Alicia Grassi, of Erie. "This is so awful. This has affected so more people than you can imagine, so I really feel for the firefighters, the people at the hospitals. This has just affected too many people, and it just breaks my heart. It really does."

There are other ways you can help these families. Donation funds have been set up at Northwest Bank and Burton Funeral Home.
