Fairdale Pizza & Pub collects donations for victims of Gatlinburg fire

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Fairdale restaurant known for serving pizza really delivers when it comes to helping victims who lost everything in the wildfires. 

Fairdale Pizza & Pub posted on its Facebook page Wednesday that it was collecting items to deliver to Gatlinburg. Neighbors jumped into action, dropping off bottled water, clothing, toiletries and toys to help. 

Restaurant workers wanted to help because so many customers visit Gatlinburg and have so many fond memories of the area.

"Reaction has been overwhelming," said Chris Maynard, owner of the pub. "Our phones have been ringing all day asking what people can do to help out. Being in Fairdale community, anytime we've asked for help, this community has really pulled together."

You can drop off items until Friday night at the restaurant on W. Manslick Road. Workers will deliver them to Gatlinburg on Saturday.
