    Philanthropy in Harmony

    Jerry Jones, owner of the Cowboys, lauded Parton's generous donation. This marks the 27th consecutive year of collaboration between the Cowboys and the Salvation Army, resulting in over $3 billion raised during this enduring partnership.

    Expressing his admiration, Jones remarked via NBC 5 in Dallas, "If the Cowboys could emulate the professionalism of the Salvation Army in aiding Dallas, considering the donated funds stay within the local community, we would secure a Super Bowl victory every year."
