HUNTINGTON, WV -

On Thursday, a baby shower was thrown at Marshall University to help raise money for a new drug addiction center for newborns.

Lily's Place on Seventh Avenue is the new home of a regional and national leader in the care of babies suffering from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, or drug addiction.  Members of the Office of Community Engagement held a baby shower at Marshall University to get items for donation for the new drug addiction center for newborns. 

People helped by dropping of diapers, bottles, soaps and the like. 

Elizabeth Appell Sheets says getting the essentials is her priority. "It's new. It's a recovery addiction center for newborn babies who sadly are addicted to drugs from their mothers and their set to open later this month and we just wanted to help them get started and got the essential items that they have requested," Sheets said. 

Lily's places is slated to open Sept. 29.
