Parton to donate $1000 monthly to families in Tennessee

IANS  |  Los Angeles 

Singer will donate $1000 per month for six months to families affected by the Tennessee wildfires.

The 70-year-old has announced plans to make the donations through her Dollywood Foundation as well as her various Dollywood Companies -- including the Dollywood Theme Park and DreamMore Resort -- in the hope that her charitable deeds will be able to rebuild the homes and lives of those affected by the fires which broke out in the Great Smoky Mountains earlier this week, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"As you may know by now, there have been terrible wildfires in the Great Smoky Mountains, the same mountains where I grew up and where my people call home," Parton said.

"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 theatre attractions including Dixie Stampede and Lumberjack Adventure; and my Dollywood Foundation to help me establish the My People Fund," she added.

The Dollywood Foundation website is currently accepting donations for the cause, where it says more information will be available to the public on Friday.

The site reads: "We want to provide a hand up to those families who have lost everything in the fires. To aid in their recovery effort, the Dollywood Foundation will provide $1,000 a month to all of those families who lost their homes in the fires for six months so that they can get back on their feet."
