(Radio.com) Dolly Parton is in the process of organizing a telethon to support wildfire victims around Gatlinburg, Tennessee. MusicRow reports that the event will be held on December 13 in Nashville, Tennessee.

'I know there are a lot of great events being planned to help the people of East Tennessee, however, I am planning a telethon to support the 'My People Fund' where 100 percent of the money will help those who lost their homes in the wildfire. I am planning on doing this on December 13 in Nashville, Tennessee," the singer says.

Parton previously announced the My People Fund, through which $1,000 a month will be provided for six months to families who lost their homes in the fires. Read more here.
