“Volunteer of the Le Antonio’s Youth Conference-Youth Movement Gives Back to the Elderly”
February 13, 2015
Today fourteen (14) elderly families from the disadvantaged (ghetto) areas of Railway Lane and Barnet Lane -Montego Bay, St. James, and the Sandy Bay area in the parish of Hanover benefited from the efforts of the Le Antonio’s Foundation Youth Movements, a body of the Le Antonio’s Foundation Youth Conference.
Youths are volunteering to raise funds and give back to the community as a part of the initiative of the Le Antonio’s Foundation Youth Conference to promote empathy, humanitarianism, responsibility and leadership in the young generation — leaders of tomorrow. In the coming months, the Youth Movement will be hosting several events to encourage community service and camaraderie of the youths — these events will lead into the grand event of the Le Antonio’s Foundation National Youth Conference 2015.
These young ladies were excited to participate in giving back, they we all smiles as they packed groceries and toiletries into black plastic bags and handed the bags to the needy elderly who showed up at the Homework and Development Center for donations. We say Kudos to the future generation!
THIS EVENT WAS COVERED BY THE “JAMAICA OBSERVER” NEWSPAPER:

We are need of support to continue, we only had food bags for 14 families, which will last only one day or two in most families, but as the news spread throughout the community that we were donating to the elderly, families began to show up in droves; we were sadden to have to turn away so many people. Please help us by donating food, clothing, toys, toiletries, money or whatever you can. No donation is ever too small. Thank you as always.
