Feeling a little charitable this time of the year, then check out “Create a Dream Tree for Kids” holiday gift drive. Organized by Jim Justice who is the owner of The Greenbrier resort, he has also appealed to other charitable organizations to join his efforts. Through this gift drive he hopes to donate over $1 million in toys and clothes to charity. This charity is expected to provide 80% of toys and clothing for kids and remainder will provide clothing for adults. The resort has already invested in over 9,000 toys and are looking for more in donations. Justice expressed “Every child should have something to open on Christmas morning,” said Justice. “I have been incredibly blessed in my life, but to me, the most important thing is giving back. Imagine a family who is struggling to get by each day, then on Christmas morning, they each have gifts to open. Christmas is about giving and hope. We want these gifts to bring happiness and hope to those that need it most.”
The Greenbrier is accepting donations in the form of cash, unwrapped toys and purchases from their retail store. Donation will be accepted until December 13th and is tax-deductible.
