Charitable - We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

-Winston Churchill-

Paris has a long history of charitable donations with a particular emphasis on helping those in need. We also believe in the promotion of the free enterprise system, which has made our success possible. In 2012, Paris employees came together to collect items for the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Due to the overwhelming response, our CEO was moved to create an internal charitable giving program.

“Make it Better” was established so that employees could partake in giving back on behalf of Paris. Each employee can nominate local charities near and dear to them, to receive a contribution. The nomination is then reviewed by an employee panel to make sure it fits within certain established criteria.

Maybe you know of a well-deserving charitable organization. We welcome your suggestions and ask for you to send them through our Contact Us page.

Charitable Spotlight: The Little Sisters of the Poor

Little Sisters of the Poor

Through our Make It Better (MIB) Campaign at Paris, we have partnered with The Little Sisters of the Poor whose mission is hospitality to the elderly community. This international congregation of Roman Catholic women religious group was founded in 1839 by Saint Jeanne Jugan. Together with a diverse network of collaborators, they serve the elderly poor in over 30 countries around the world.

Little Sisters of the Poor offers the neediest elderly of every race and religion a home where they will be welcomed as Christ, cared for as family and accompanied with dignity until God calls them to himself.

They serve the elderly day and night, striving to meet their physical needs, to make them happy and to minister to them spiritually. This is only accomplished by working together as a community, each one bringing her gifts and talents to the work of hospitality.

We want to Thank the Little Sisters of the Poor for all their effort and hard work for Making It Better.
