Beat the Heat

Beat the Heat

WPSD Local 6, Paducah Bank and the Salvation Army of Southern Illinois are working together to help local families Beat The Heat. The goal is to collect as many fans as possible for local community service agencies to distribute to families who might not otherwise be able to afford one.

From Monday, June 6, through Friday, July 8, drop off a new fan at a Paducah Bank location in western Kentucky or the Salvation Army in southern Illinois.  Local community service organizations will distribute the fans to families that need help.  See the list below of participating branches and their addresses. 

WPSD Local 6 will also be hosting "Beat the Heat Day" on Wednesday, June 29. This is a one day, drive-thru fan collection event in the parking lot of Local 6. We are located at 100 Television Lane, across from St. Mary High School. Drop offs will be accepted from 6 a.m to 5:30 p.m. Not only can you donate to your community, but that day the Paducah Bank WOW wagon will be handing out ice cream.

Thanks in advance for helping WPSD Local 6, Paducah Bank and the Salvation Army of Southern Illinois Beat The Heat!

Volunteers with Paducah Bank will be in the Local 6 parking lot until 5:30 p.m. collecting those fans that local community service agencies will then distribute to families in our community that need help beating the heat. And if you stop by today, you'll also get free ice cream from the Paducah WOW Wagon!

That means we've now eclipsed the 500 mark in our fundraiser! If you missed today's event, you can still donate fans at at all Paducah Bank locations and at Salvation Army locations in southern Illinois.
