Mt. Sterling, Montgomery Co. Fiscal Court Start “Give to Gatlinburg” Project
MOUNT STERLING, Ky. (WTVQ) – The City of Mt. Sterling and Montgomery County Fiscal Court have started the “Give to Gatlinburg” project to help first responders who lost homes and more during the Tennessee wildfires.
The project started after the Montgomery County 911 Center reached out to Sevier County E9-1-1 and discovered Paramedic/Fire Fighter Pete Thompson, who lost his home and all his belongings while he was on duty fighting the fires, and going door to door evacuating people in harm’s way.
To help Medic Thompson, organizers are asking for GIFT CARD DONATIONS ONLY. No checks or other items will be collected/accepted. Staff will deliver all collected cards to Sevier County Ambulance and Fire Service before Christmas.
Collection boxes have been placed at the following locations:
Mt. Sterling Police Department
Mt. Sterling City Hall
County Judge Executive’s Office
Montgomery County Fire Station 2 (across from Kroger)
Montgomery County 911 Center (open 24hours)
The boxes will be in these locations until Friday December 16, 2016.
