From all of us here at Jim Barna Log & Timber Homes, our thoughts and prayers go out to those who have been affected by the wildfires in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. We know we have many customers, friends and families whose lives have been impacted by this devastation.
The acts and generosity and kindness we have seen is overwhelming ! People from all over the country have given money and time to this relief effort. We want to say a special THANK YOU to our own Jim and Shelly Stephens along with several others from their area who drove over 16 hours from and to Illinois this past Saturday with loaded pickup trucks and trailers carrying donated items from folks in their area ! We are blessed to have so many thoughtful, caring and generous people in the Jim Barna company.
If you would like to join Jim Barna Log & Timber Homes in helping out, you can send a check payable to Gatlinburg Relief Fund and mail directly to:
Gatlinburg Relief Fund
PO Box 1910
Pigeon Forge, TN 37868
All funds collected via this relief fund will be disbursed directly to those families in Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and Sevier Counties that have been affected by the fires. An outpouring of support and kindness has been extraordinary from all over the country. Truckloads of food, water, toiletries, and other items have been received. At this time, the best way we can help is with monitary donations to assist those who are in need.
