TheYOUtee, an online business based out of Kingsport, Tennessee released its #GatlinburgStrong shirt series last week in response to the wildfires that devastated Sevier County, Tennessee.
The company, owned by Tara Burns and Jenny Kontos, formed last spring with the purpose of creating and selling shirts to assist non-profits and charitable organizations.
The #GatlinburgStrong tee is the second in their series—they recently donated $2,500 to the Greater Kingsport Boys & Girls Club through sales of their ‘Young Aspiring’ tees. 100% of the profits from the #GatlinburgStrong shirt go to support the Dollywood Foundation’s ‘My People Fund,’ which will donate $1,000 every month for six months to people who lost their homes in the fire.
#GatlinburgStrong shirts are available in several styles—a white and gray-sleeved raglan ($18), a gray and black-sleeved raglan ($18), a gray thermal ($18), and a gray tee ($15). The shirts feature a tree-lined hilltop, stars, and circular design indicative of the Tennessee flag. Design colors and sizes vary based on shirt style. Sizes range from adult XS to 4XL.
Shirts can be ordered by visiting theYOUtee.com and will be available next week for pick up and purchase at 217 Broad Street, #110, Kingsport. (Due to high-demand, online ordering is recommended).
