Bank teams with Habitat

BY LAUREL BLACKlblack@paducahsun.com

Independence Bank and Habitat for Humanity will soon break ground on a home for a local family.

Bank President Danny Evitts presented a $25,000 check to the organization Tuesday at the McCracken County Public Library. The bank, which has already built five homes with Habitat, will also allow employees to work on company time to help build the house.

"We feel like we've been blessed, and we feel it's our obligation to give back to the communities," Evitts said.

Habitat for Humanity is choosing between two locations within Paducah on which to build the house. Habitat Executive Director Angie Wilke said a family has been selected for the home.

Evitts said the groundbreaking will be held near the end of this month, at which point the family that receives the home will be identified.  Construction will likely finish early this summer. It typically takes between 90 and 120 days to build a Habitat house, depending on the size of the project, he said.

After the McCracken County site is completed, the bank plans to work with Habitat for Humanity to build in Calloway, Hancock and Warren counties.  

"Habitat is not the end. We'll continue to give back; we'll continue to look for other opportunities. It's in our DNA," Evitts said.
