Paducah Bank employees Terry Bradley and D'Che Harper-Beyer presented a check for $2,000 to Baptist Health Paducah today. The check represents donations from Paducah Bank customers and staff who placed ornaments on bank lobby Christmas trees during December. Each ornament was customized with the name of a loved one who had battled cancer for a minimum donation of $10. The proceeds will be used by Baptist Health Foundation Paducah for their cancer fund which supports cancer patients and their families.
"We began this holiday project in 2014, and it was such a great success that we continued it for Christmas 2015," said Paducah Bank President Mardie Herndon. "I never cease to be impressed by the generosity of our staff and customers! Thanks to their support of the work that Baptist Health Paducah is doing to comfort and heal those in our community dealing with cancer, we were able to double our previous year's donation!"
