Paris, Texas -- Paris Independent School District employees competed in a ‘Stuff the Bus’ stuffing drive and it was a complete success. District employees donated 3,085 boxes of stuffing for the Downtown Food Pantry.

According to drive director Jennifer Ray, “It was a very close competition with Paris Junior High School winning over Paris High School by only five boxes! PJH has possession of the coveted Traveling Turkey Trophy until the competition begins next year.”

Operations Director Chuck Burton said, “This donation is going to make a lot of people have a better holiday season. Every customer that visits the Pantry before Thanksgiving will receive stuffing and because of your donation, we will be able to give two boxes of stuffing to those in need.”

Asst. Superintendent Althea Dixon, Chuck Burton, Drive Director Jennifer Ray, State/Federal Programs Director Karol Ackley, and CTE and Secondary Education Director John McCullough deliver stuffing to the Downtown Food Pantry.

Paris Junior High School Builder's Club officers traveled loaded the PJH donations and trav-eled with the bus to deliver to the Pantry.
