NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Dollywood Foundation has pledged to donate $1,000 each month for the next six months to victims of the Sevier County wildfires.
Dolly Parton made the announcement Wednesday night in a video message.
The Dollywood Company and The Dollywood Foundation to establish a fund to assist the victims of the Great Smoky Mountain wildfires in Tennessee. The new My People Fund will provide $1000 each month to Sevier County families who lost their homes.
“I’ve always believed charity begins at home and my home is some place special,” Parton explained.
“That’s why I’ve asked my Dollywood Companies—including the Dollywood theme park, and DreamMore Resort; my dinner theater attractions including Dixie Stampede and Lumberjack Adventure; and my Dollywood Foundation—to help me establish the My People Fund. We want to provide a hand up to those families who have lost everything in the fires. I know it has been a trying time for my people and this assistance will help get them back on their feet.”
