Beloved country singer and actress Dolly Parton announced on Wednesday that her foundation would be donating $1,000 every month to each family affected by the wildfires raging through the Great Smoky Mountains.

Being a Tennessee native herself, Parton’s foundation and collective of companies, including the Dollywood theme park, resort, and dinner theater, are all contributing to the Sevier County fundraiser, the “My People Fund”.
