Country music star Dolly Parton and her businesses have raised $700,000 to help victims of the recent flooding in central Tennessee.
She and her Smoky Mountain businesses gave the funds to the United Way of Humphreys County, the organization chosen by her friend, Loretta Lynn, Fox 17 reported Wednesday.
“I hope that this money can be put to good use to help the people of Middle Tennessee with what they need during their recovery,” Parton commented.
“Loretta and her people helped us out so much following the wildfires in 2016 that I just knew we had to do something to help them. They have our prayers and our thoughts as they go through this time,” she added.
