Help families Affected by the Smoky Mountain Wildfires

Help Families Affected by the Smoky Mountain WildfiresIf you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that I am not one to ask for help or money. I am not asking for money myself, but I am asking for help. As you may know, I am originally from Eastern Tennessee near the Great Smoky Mountains. They are ablaze right now. I am asking that if you’re able to do so financially, consider donating to help the families that lost their homes and everything during an already financially stressful time of year.

I will update this list with resources as I receive them.Help Families Affected by the Smoky Mountain Wildfires
