WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. — (December 21, 2021): Celebrating its 11th
season, The Greenbrier’s Dream Tree for Kids campaign distributed $1 million worth of toys to more than 160 organizations on December 14, helping to assure that children throughout West Virginia and beyond its borders have at least one gift to open on Christmas morning.
These gifts, purchased by the Justice family, are carefully selected to provide an educational or active component. More than 70 Team Members at The Greenbrier volunteered to help distribute the toys to organizations from six states during the distribution event. The organizations transported the gifts back to their locations and will distribute to children from newborns to 15-year-olds in need of assistance this holiday season.
At the end of the Distribution Day process, approximately 1,000 toys remained. These toys were donated to the Good Tidings for Kentucky to be distributed to children impacted by the tornadoes in Kentucky earlier this month. White Sulphur Springs native Kimberly Lester created the organization, knowing the impact of natural disasters after losing her mother in the 2016 floods that devastated so much of Greenbrier County. The group will deliver toys and other items collected from the community to the small town of Bremen, Kentucky, where 12 residents lost their lives.
“The Dream Tree project has helped bring smiles to so many children over the past 11 years,” said Jill Justice, DO, President of The Greenbrier. “Those families trying to pick up their lives after the disaster in Kentucky have been through so much, and we’re hopeful that we can help give them at least one positive moment on Christmas morning as their recovery continues.”
