Lemonade Day volunteers raise funds for NAS

May 22, 2019

TEAYS VALLEY — Lemonade Day volunteers raised funds at Liberty Square and in front of Kroger in Teays Valley to support Lily’s Place, a neonatal abstinence syndrome treatment center in Huntington, on Saturday morning, May 18.

“At Lily’s Place, our mission is to provide medical care to infants suffering from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) and offer non-judgmental support, education and counseling services to families and caregivers. Together we can create healthier families and help end the cycle of addiction,” the center says on its website, https://www.lilysplace.org/.

Lemonade Day is a fun, experiential program that teaches youth how to start, own and operate their very own business — a lemonade stand. Each year, in participating cities, youth have the opportunity to experience entrepreneurship by setting up their business during their city’s community-wide Lemonade Day.

Often, these young entrepreneurs use their experience as a chance to give back to their communities by donating their earnings to a nonprofit organization.
