Zac Brown, frontman of the country music group Zac Brown Band, stepped up to the plate to give what he could to those affected by the devastating Tennessee wildfires. Brown utilized his 18-wheeler, Cookie, to transport resources and food to those currently seeking shelter at Rocky Top Sports World in Gatlinburg.
“We sent our kitchen truck that we have, which is an 18-wheeler truck with a fully operating commercial kitchen. … We call it ‘Cookie,’ so we sent Cookie up and she arrived on Friday, and Cookie actually relieved the kitchen staff at Rocky Top Sports World … so she was able to give the staff at Rocky Top Sports World a break, let them regroup, clean up and then get back to it. I believe Sunday evening is when they started serving meals again at Rocky Top,” explained Southern Ground Public Relations Specialist Alyssa Goodman.
Goodman explained that this isn’t an ordinary occurrence, but they felt almost compelled looking at the losses of both structures, families, and necessities. The company is proud in its decision to aid those in need.
Thank you to all that have made their efforts to lend out a helping hand in this time of need!
