Dolly Parton Announces My People Fund– Will Give $1,000 To Families Each Month Who Lost Everything in Wild Fires

-

Dolly Parton is putting her money where her people are in a big, big way.

Parton 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 to Sevier County families who lost their homes.

In a video, Parton spoke of charity and her home and urged others to help families in need, “”I’ve always believed charity begins at home and my home is some place special. 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.
