Dolly Parton has another honor to add on her awards shelf and this one is from the Knoxville, Tennessee Branch of the FBI.

Parton and her Dollywood Foundation received the FBI awarded the Dollywood Foundation with the 2018 Director’s Community Leadership Award because they provided $10,000 to each of the 900 families who lost their homes in the 2016 wildfires.

The FBI said in a press release, “The donations brought renewed hope to a community devastated by the worst natural disaster in Tennessee history,”

Dolly said in a thank you video, “Is is an honor for me to be recognized by the FBI because there’s no higher calling then your vision to protect and to serve us. Have the faith and the strength and the vision to make your dreams come true.”
