Dolly Parton is once again proving she’s a charitable celebrity.
The country music superstar is donating $1M dollars to pediatric infectious disease research at a children’s hospital in Nashville.
The new gift is one of several Parton has made to the center over the years including $1M at the start of the pandemic for COVID vaccine research.
Parton says she supports the work because she loves children and wants to “keep as many of them as I can as healthy and safe as possible.”
