Area dealership will help fund recovery program

November 19, 2018

BARBOURSVILLE — Throughout the holiday season, Dutch Miller Kia will be contributing $50.00 per sold car to Lily’s Place, a local nonprofit that specializes in Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome.

This endeavor is a change for the locally-owned auto dealer, who would normally assist different organizations in a more understated manner. This campaign is part of a new concept in which Dutch Miller Kia “adopts” one organization, and makes a long-term monetary commitment. According to Dutch Miller Kia Business Development manager Chris Anastasia, this campaign has multiple facets.

“We are so excited to be able to help such a worthwhile and dedicated organization (as Lily’s Place,)” Anastasia noted. “Along with a per-sold car donation, we are planning a number of donation drive events to help raise money and assistance.”

For Lily’s Place, and the nearly 100 infants they treat annually, the help is much appreciated. Nearly half of their operating budget is funding raised by the community. According to Olivia Meade, Director of Development, this partnership is just the latest in a long history of the community supporting this effort.

″ For the past four years we have been blessed with tremendous support from the community,” Meade said. “Partnerships like this with Dutch Miller go a long way in helping us care for these babies and carry out our mission.”

Lily’s Place is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization located in Huntington, WV specializing in care for infants who have been prenatally exposed to drugs, while offering support and counseling for their families. For more information about their programs, please contact Olivia Meade at (304) 523-5459 or olivia@lilysplace.org.
