There has been a terrible fire in Tennessee. The wildfire spread all over Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains National park.
This caused over 14,000 people to evacuate their homes. According to accuweather 11 people died during the fire.
It hasn’t been covered much by news because it’s not political and doesn’t earn the clicks that bashing Trump does. However, as all these people lose their homes one woman stepped up in a major way, songwriter/singer Dolly Parton.
Her foundation will be donating $1,000 a month to all of the families who lost their homes. This money will be given to them each month for six months until the victims can get back up on their feet.
“As you may know by know, there have been terrible wildfires in the Great Smoky Mountains, the same mountains where I grew up and where my people call home,”
I have always believed that charity begins at home. 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.” Dolly Parton wrote on her website.
