In the wake of the Tennessee wildfires that have devastated the towns surrounding the Great Smoky Mountains, killing a least seven people, hometown hero Dolly Parton has come to the rescue. On Wednesday, Parton announced she’ll be donating $1,000 every month for six months to the families who’ve lost their homes in the fires. The relief aid will come via her Dollywood Foundation, which was personally affected by the fires when her theme park Dollywood had to be evacuated earlier this week. “I have always believed that charity begins at home,” Parton said in a statement. Her foundation is also accepting donations from the public, and you do not want to let Dolly down!
