No wait!
The software grant *donates* the code to the foundation, so all the
rights become of Apache itself, not of the owners.
The previous owners of the right will be mentioned only in the IP
(intellectual property) clearance form.
In your case I suggest to:
1. add the code in your software;
2. add the copyright information on the top of the file that contains
it, before the license header.
3. add in the NOTICE file a reference like this:

This software contains code developed by (copyright owner) for the
project (name of the project): (project website).
