Hedgesville community stepping up to brighten young boy’s Christmas

HEDGESVILLE, W.Va. — A little boy who loves Jeeps is about to get a big show from the folks who love them, too.

Jeeps for Georgie

Jeeps for Georgie is kicking off in Hedgesville Wednesday evening, and so far more than 1,800 people have RSVP’ed.

Organizers are hoping to brighten Christmas for a four-year-old boy who is battling Stage Four Neuroblastoma.

Anyone with a Jeep is invited to take part and encouraged to decorate the SUV for the occasion. Jeeps are gathering at James Rumsey Technical Institute at 4 p.m. afternoon. From there, the parade will travel the roughly ten minutes to Georgie’s house.

Organizers say they are working with local law enforcement to give us an escort to Georgie’s house.

More information can be found at the Jeeps for Georgie Facebook event page.
