The donation represents the Board's wish to make a charitable contribution rather than receive Christmas gifts for themselves from the Bank. In past years, the Paducah Bank directors who have had perfect attendance at all board meetings during the year pick the recipient for the donation on behalf of the Board. This year, the perfect attendance directors (Glenn Denton, Shirley Walker, Joe Framptom, Conner Framptom and Mardie Herndon) decided to pass the honor of selecting the charity to the newly formed Paducah Bank Community Board.
“It is definitely a challenge to pick a charity to support each year with so many great non-profits in our community,” said Community Board chairman Matt Snow. “However, after much deliberation, we decided that Hope Unlimited is the best choice this year. They make a significant impact in our community by supporting families, and I personally have witnessed the impact they can make through friends of mine. We are thankful for what they do and happy to support them.”
Past recipients of the Christmas donation include Paducah Independent Schools Transitional Student Services Program and Child Watch.
