Norfolk Southern announced they'll give more money to organizations helping East Palestine residents rebuild their lives following February's train derailment in the village.

The rail company is donating $250,000 to The Way Station, a Columbiana base non-profit. The Way Station has been assisting residents with food, clothing, water, hygiene products, diapers, cleaning supplies, and gift cards to purchase other necessities during this time.

With this donation, the non-profit will be able to establish a larger and more permanent location in East Palestine. They will also hire a social worker and additional staff.

"We know the needs in East Palestine will change over time," said Chaney Nezbeth, The Way Station Director. "And we want to be there to serve this community over the long term."

In a press release, Norfolk Southern made sure to note that this brings their total financial commitment to the village to "approximately $24 million, with more to come."

"We are committed to doing what's right for East Palestine," said Norfolk Southern President and CEO Alan Shaw. "We are finding ways we can invest in the community's future and support their long-term needs."

Despite this comment, Shaw refused to commit to supporting an increase in rail regulations when asked if he would do so during a hearing in front of the U.S. Senate earlier this month.
