$8,035 donated to help feed hungry people in Paducah

Paducah Cooperative Ministries accepted a check for $8,035 on Wednesday.

In 2014, the Paducah Bank started a program to help feed hungry people in our community.

Each time a customer uses their debit card as a credit transaction, money is given to a local organization like PCM.

"We have been so excited about this donation," says Heidi Suhrheinrich, executive director at Paducah Cooperative Ministries. "It’s been much anticipated and at a great time. It’s at a time when we really need it."

Suhrheinrich says the money will be used to help PCM carry out its mission to provide basic human needs, like food and shelter, for those struggling in our community.
