The holidays are quickly approaching and thousands of people in West Virginia are still trying to recover from two severely damaging storms this year.

To help, the Greenbrier Resort is donating $1 million to share the Christmas spirit with as many children as possible.

Thursday kicked off the Create A Dream Tree program at the Greenbrier.

"The spirit of helping kids, how could anyone not want to help kids," said Greenbrier Owner Jim Justice. "And especially a lot of kids that are having a tough go around with their families, you know, you have every situation in the world."

The Greenbrier will be handing out the presents to more than 100 charity organizations this year.

Officials said they hope the $1 million donation is just the beginning of this year's giveaway.
