The devastation caused by the fires in Gatlinburg has been debilitating to families and businesses. As a community, we all want to assist our East Tennessee neighbors in any way we can, and any contribution and demonstrations of kindness are incredibly empowering to those who need immediate aid. We at A. Marshall Family Foods and the Tennessee Hospitality & Tourism Association (TnHTA) team are working together to help our friends in Sevier County.
Throughout the month of December, all of our restaurants in Middle Tennessee will be accepting a wide range of toiletries and non-perishables. We will be taking the donations to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area, to the former Boyd’s Bears/American Bandstand facility, which is now serving as a donation HQ for the community. The first round of donations will be delivered the week of Dec. 12!
Additionally, we will allow diners to add a donation to the TnHTA’s “Together We Prepare” fund to their total bill, and we’ll match a portion of contributions. Separate donations by cash or credit card will also be accepted.
Please join us in helping our East Tennessee friends in their time of desperate need.
