CHARMCO, W. Va (WVVA)-- A generous gift brings students at Greenbrier West some extra Christmas cheer on Wednesday morning.

After LNS Toyota in Beckley awarded $1000 to the school earlier this month, Greenbrier West decided to give it back to the students.

"They said to use it for something good," said Principal Randy Auvil. "So we are giving needy students gifts for Christmas."

Hand-picked students in need this holiday season received jeans, sweatshirts, candy, socks, and other related items as early Christmas presents.

9th grader Corbin DeWitt said she appreciated the surprise.

"It's so cool how they knew our sizes and tried to estimate our sizes, everything will probably fit really well," she said. "It's nice to see the smiles on the other kids' faces too."

Auvil added the presents show joy and cheer to what can be a hard time, not just economically but also throughout the nation.

"It's a time when we have a lot of crisis and a lot of tragedy in the world, and a lot of things going on," he said.  "We can take this little snippet, and actually see some joy."

Staff went shopping for the gifts, and Auvil said they had fun doing it.

10th grader Jeremy Angle said this was especially nice for him.

"I'm kind of happy with what I got today because I didn't think I'd get anything else," he told WVVA. "
