The Greenbrier's Dream Tree Set
to Distribute $1 Million in Toys


WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. – (December 13, 2016): The Greenbrier is proud to announce that for the sixth straight year America's Resort will be donating more than $1 million in toys to local and national charities for its “Dream Tree for Kids” holiday gift drive.

The brainchild of The Greenbrier’s owner and CEO, Jim Justice, who initiates the drive with his own generous donations each year, the project helps to ensure that children throughout West Virginia and beyond wake up Christmas morning with at least one special gift to unwrap.

“There are a lot of people hurting right now,” said Justice, who is also West Virginia’s Governor-elect. “The Dream Tree is needed now more than ever before, and we at The Greenbrier are excited to help any way we can. We are giving out the presents, but we get back so much more in return simply by being able to make Christmas a little brighter for some wonderful people.”

Organizations who qualified to receive gifts by filling out a registration form in October, will be at The Greenbrier on Dec. 15 to pick up the gifts and distribute them to those in need. More than 100 organizations qualified, and more than 32,000 toys are ready for distribution. Volunteers worked more than 1,700 hours and used nearly 29,000 feet of wrapping paper to wrap the more than 13,000 presents that will be distributed along with almost 20,000 unwrapped gifts.

The "Dream Tree for Kids" is a part of The Greenbrier's ongoing commitment to serve the community and its citizens. In addition to the organizations that are aided by The Greenbrier year round, Neighbors Loving Neighbors has been at the forefront of community support since the devastating floods of June 23, 2016. Those efforts are continuing as more and more houses are being rebuilt for those who lost so much on that tragic day.
