Hopefully, the Downtown Paris Food Pantry is conducting a food drive to collect 5,000 boxes of stuffing for Thanksgiving distribution. The Pantry helps an average of 600 families a week throughout Lamar County. A contest is underway between Kiwanis and Rotary to see which organization can collect the most. The Pantry is open Monday through Friday, 8:00 till noon to receive boxes. The drive ends on November 19.
