Paducah Bank presented a check today to Paducah Cooperative Ministry for $8,035 to support the work of the organization in feeding the hungry in Paducah-McCracken County. The bank has contributed $16,035 to PCM this calendar year as a part of their Swipe and Serve program.
“Last year, we began a partnership with our customers to support our commitment to the needs of the community,” said Mardie Herndon, Paducah Bank president. “Our Swipe and Serve project allows our customers to help us help those who are hungry in our city and county. With each signature-based debit card transaction that our customers make, we set aside a contribution to a local organization that helps feed the hungry. This is our third quarter contribution of 2015 and we have once again surpassed our quarterly goal of $7,500! This is a fantastic testament to the people who make Paducah Bank the kind of community bank that we can all be very proud of.”
“Paducah Bank continues to be a great supporter of our work in the community,” said Heidi Suhrheinrich, executive director of Paducah Cooperative Ministry. “An average of more than 500 households a month receive emergency groceries from PCM thanks to our generous community and the terrific people at Paducah Bank. Not only did they provide monetary help, they also provided much needed manpower and service hours – stocking shelves, distributing groceries, etc. We are very grateful for their help.”
“Our final cycle of the year begins now,” said Susan Guess, senior vice president of marketing for Paducah Bank. “For the fourth quarter of 2015, we plan to make a contribution to River City Mission. Our goal is to be able to provide at least $7,500. But our hope is to continue our record of surpassing our goals. We need everyone’s help to ensure another strong donation for this deserving organization and a strong finish to a year’s worth of giving.”
