Shahila Bailey (right), a volunteer at Le Antonio's Foundation, presents Barnett Lane, Montego Bay resident Angela Blake, with a gift package containing items of foodstuff and toiletry during a treat for the elderly at the foundation's Barnett Lane headquarters in the resort city recently. Sharing in the moment is Antonio McKoy, the Foundation's president.

Almost 20 elderly residents from Barnett Lane and adjoining communities received gift bags during the treat.

According to McKoy, the distribution of gift packages to the elderly formed part of a slew of events leading up to the foundation's inaugural staging of its National Youth Conference to be held in Montego Bay in November.
