The Greenbrier is embarking on another holiday charity gift drive.
The White Sulphur Springs resort announced this year's Create a Dream Tree for Kids drive on Thursday.
The Greenbrier says more than $1 million worth of toys will be donated to charitable organizations.
The Greenbrier and Paws2Care are partnering to distribute more than 1,750 copies of the children's book, "Beamer Visits the Emergency Room," to children who wake up in emergency rooms in the Inova Hospital system on Christmas morning. Children also will receive Beamer stuffed animals.
Donations of toys or money will be accepted through Dec. 12.
Last year, about 30,000 gifts were distributed to 98 charities that requested assistance from the Create a Dream Tree project.
