Take Action: Tennessee Wildfires

Wildfires in Eastern Tennessee have killed 11 people, hospitalized 75 people and damaged 700 homes and businesses in the towns of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. More than 14,000 people had been forced to leave Gatlinburg, and about 500 from Pigeon Forge. About 2,000 people had been taken to emergency shelters. Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the fires, and we are proud to be supporting The Dollywood Foundation's My People Fund, set up by Dolly Parton, Miley's godmother and fellow Tennessee native. The My People Fund will benefit families who have lost their homes in the fire.

How you can help:

  • Support Dolly Parton's My People Fund through the Dollywood Foundation. The Dollywood Foundation has committed to provide $1,000 a month to all those families who lost their homes in the fires for six months so that they can get back on their feet
