“The devastation in West Virginia, especially around Greenbrier County, was heartbreaking to see unfold,” said Hamlin, a regular on The Greenbrier’s golf courses, who wears the resort’s logo on the sleeve of his racing fire suit. “The area is full of hard-working, honest people that, unfortunately, lost a lot. I have seen a lot of other athletes and celebrities help the residents of West Virginia in various ways, and I wanted to give back, as well. Providing area children with new toys is just a small part of the rebuilding process, but hopefully it provides a little relief for the friends, family and neighbors of the Greenbrier.”
