Dream Tree for Kids

Events & Holidays
The Greenbrier will be holding its “Dream Tree for Kids” holiday gift drive for the tenth straight year in 2020. The annual charitable campaign will donate more than $1 million in toys to local and national charities.

The "Dream Tree for Kids" project is the brainchild of the Justice family, which was inspired to help the community and beyond celebrate the season by ensuring that children wake up on Christmas morning with at least one gift to unwrap.

“To see these packages stacked up in the Lobby awaiting delivery is an amazing sight,” said Dr. Jill Justice, President of The Greenbrier. “But to hear the stories of the children who receive them is what really touches the hearts of everyone involved. It has become part of the holiday tradition at The Greenbrier, and all of our Team Members look forward to it each year.”

All gifts and proceeds from the "Dream Tree for Kids" drive will go toward the purchase of toys for children in need.

"It's really difficult to comprehend how many children wouldn't have a present to open if not for this project," said a past Dream Tree participating organization. "The kids light up brighter than the tree when they see these presents, and the impact that it has on the parents is incredible."
