Ornaments can be customized and added to a Christmas tree in honor or in memory of a loved one for a minimum donation of $10. The trees will be on display in the Lone Oak, Strawberry Hill, Mid-City, Reidland, and Main Office lobbies during December.
“We were thrilled with the amount of participation we had last year,” said Mardie Herndon, Paducah Bank president. “Thanks to all of our generous customers, we were able to provide a donation of $1,000 to Baptist Health Foundation Paducah. That $1,000 went directly toward support services for cancer patients in our community. Each of us, no doubt, has been touched by this frightening disease in some way either through friends or family. This year, we want to double our efforts and provide at least $2,000 to the Foundation. We will need everyone’s help to accomplish this goal. This is such an easy way to spread a little Christmas cheer while doing something enormously valuable to cancer patients all around our region.”
The Baptist Health Foundation Paducah was established six years ago and to date has raised more than $3.3 million to support patients and families. “These donations have allowed us to purchase neonatal equipment for our tiniest patients, enhance our cardiac rehabilitation center, expand our surgical waiting areas, and provide educational and support services for our cancer and stroke patients,” said Bill Brown, president of Baptist Health Paducah. “This holiday partnership with Paducah Bank is one more way in which we can all join together as corporate citizens and work to provide much-needed health services to people in our community. We greatly value Paducah Bank’s commitment to our community and to this project of charitable service to Baptist Health cancer patients.”
