WOW! Magazine: Family Day in the Park with George Wilson


Last summer Paducah Bank was a proud participant in the 2nd Annual George Wilson S.A.F.E.T.Y. Foundation’s Family Day in the Park.

Wilson, a Paducah Tilghman graduate and a safety for the NFL’s Buffalo Bills, has devoted time and effort to the work of his foundation dedicated to Save Adolescents From the Everyday Trials of Youth. Through programs such as the Leadership Retreat, Sports Fest Football Camp, and the That’s Life after-school program, the George Wilson S.A.F.E.T.Y. Foundation has impacted the lives of more than 5,000 students within the Buffalo, NY and Paducah, KY school systems since its inception in 2009.

This summer’s Day in the Park involved health screenings, 3-on-3 basketball tournaments, a family obstacle course, jungle gyms, Zumba classes, and many other summer family-fun activities.

George Wilson’s commitment to service has been demonstrated both on and off the field of play. In 2008, Wilson was the recipient of the prestigious President’s Volunteer Service Award, the highest service honor bestowed by the White House. In 2009, Wilson also received the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award for his commitment to educating today’s youth.
