Six months after a deadly ambush took the lives of six Dallas Police Department officers, a New York-based charity has come to their families' aid.

With the help of "Fox & Friends" viewers, the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation helped the widows of these officers pay off their mortgages in full.

The foundation's chairman and CEO Frank Siller joined Abby Huntsman on "Fox & Friends" Tuesday to discuss the organization's work and thank the show's audience for their support.

"To be able to pay off their mortgages and help them with their housing needs, it makes a tremendous difference in their lives," Siller said.

The organization was founded in memory of Stephen Siller, Frank's brother and a firefighter who died as a first responder on 9/11.

"Our mission is to make sure that we are there for first responders and our military in times of crisis," Frank said.
