ARLINGTON, Va., Dec. 16, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Monument Economics Group LLC has made a $1,000 donation in support of the wildfire relief efforts in Gatlinburg, TN. After learning of the devastating destruction the wildfires left in their wake, Monument seeks to support the American Red Cross of East Tennessee to provide funding and help this vibrant economy get back on its feet.
With a number of its employees hailing from this part of the country, including the President and founder, Dr. Russell Lamb, the company understands the importance of this region and feels the destruction first hand.
"While $1,000 will only go so far, we know we have to step up and show our support for this community. We want to back this relief effort in any way we can, and the American Red Cross does such an incredible job allocating resources, we knew this money would be of far greater help than our untrained hands," said Dr. Lamb.
Dr. Lamb went on to note, "Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg are both economic hubs for the greater East Tennessee region as tourism is a primary economic activity. Bringing this area back to life as quickly as possible will aid the citizens exponentially."
As the days pass since the tragic events, Monument is striving to make sure this topic and effort is still relevant as the people affected will surely not forget for years to come.
