The Greenbrier collects 38,000 gifts for needy kids
WHITESULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. -- The Greenbrier resort has collected more than 38,000 toys and other gifts for needy children.
The White Sulphur Springs resort says the record number of gifts will be distributed to 85 regional children's charities.
Volunteers wrapped most of the gifts as part of the resort's third annual Create a Dream Tree for Kids holiday drive, which was initiated by Greenbrier owner Jim Justice. Some organizations that requested assistance asked that many of the gifts remain unwrapped.
The holiday drive distributed nearly 37,000 gifts last year and about 30,000 in 2011.
