No child should be in the hospital during Christmas, but one car dealership in West Virginia is hoping to make the holidays a little brighter for those children who do. Northside Chevrolet & Northside Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Summersville is hosting a toy drive for WVU Children's Hospital.

From now though December 14, the dealership is collecting new unwrapped toys for all ages as well as any other supplies that can be used. "When you have kids and I have grand kids now, and you see how healthy they are, and you see other kids that aren't that way, you really feel good about helping out. All of my employees are involved with this. When we brought it to them, they thought it was a really good thing and some even got tears in their eyes," said Mark Lerose, General Manager of Northside Chevrolet.

Anyone who brings in a donation now through the December 14 deadline, will be entered to win $500 cash from Northside. The drawing will be at the Chevrolet dealership on December 14 at 11:30 a.m. You must be present to win.
