Greenbrier to embark on holiday gift drive

Nov. 08, 2012 @ 09:09 AM

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) — Greenbrier resort owner Jim Justice is embarking on another holiday charity gift drive.

Justice plans to announce this year’s drive on Thursday at the resort in White Sulphur Springs.

The resort says for the second straight year, Justice will make a $1 million contribution toward toys and adult clothing. And he’ll be joined by a substantial community effort.

Last year about 30,000 gifts were distributed to 98 charities that requested assistance from the Create a Dream Tree project. About 400 volunteers helped resort employees wrap the gifts.
