Dolly Parton Pledges to Help Wildfire Victims
Contributor Two Contributor Two
Through a video message, country music superstar Dolly Parton has announced a new effort by 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 for six months to Sevier County families who lost their homes.

“I’ve always believed charity begins at home and my home is someplace 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.”
 
Anyone who would like to contribute to the My People Fund may visit dollywoodfoundation.org.
For those wishing to send donations via mail to the fund, this is the address:
