Mother of eight Jolyn Williams will be returning to nursing school this year content and comfortable, knowing that there is no longer any worry about a home for her and her family. She will be moving into a brand new home donated by Fontana Pharmacy and Food For The Poor.

Last October, 'A Party with a Purpose' was held in Montego Bay. The goal of the event was to partner with Food For The Poor to raise funds for the construction of four homes. Not only was the goal met, an additional 12 houses were donated by private donors, one of them being Fontana.

The house was built in Mandeville, Manchester, where Fontana's roots were established. The pharmacy continues to build on the principles of community and giving that were laid down almost 48 years ago by Bobby and Angela Chang.
