For a week the schools collected donations, and on Monday a driver went to each school to pick up the goods and deliver them to the food pantry.

In preparation for "Stuff the Truck," families on Sunday helped decorate the truck with red ribbons and signs.

Red Ribbon Week is a citywide initiative to promote smart choices and drug prevention.
