THE BRONX - A group of Bronx teenagers helped bridge the gap between young and old, spreading holiday cheer to local senior citizens.

The Bronx Youth Empowerment program visited residents at the Rain Eastchester Senior Center to raffle off presents to their elder counterparts.

Many of the seniors say the highlight of their day was not the gifts, but getting to share stories with the teens.
