Knoxville Branch Aids Smoky Mountain Fire Relief

In November 2016, wildfires in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, destroyed more than 2,000 homes and claimed the lives of 14 people. To help with the relief effort, Knoxville Branch employees came together to raise $1,152 for the Dollywood Foundation’s My People Fund. This organization is providing $1,000 a month to families who lost their homes. Thanks to the outpouring of support from the community, the foundation raised enough money to fulfill its promise to help those whose homes were destroyed.
