At SmartPath Technologies, we are local. We are your community. We live, work, shop, eat and play here-just like you do; and we want to help our community be a better place to live, do business and raise our children. We are members of the Paducah Area Chamber of Commerce as well as the Marshall County Chamber of Commerce, but we don’t stop there.
RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES:
(A note from Willie himself) October 4, 2010-My world got flipped upside down. My wife, Kristy, gave birth to Brooke Elyse, 2 months early. Our first child, and we didn’t know anything about premature babies. It was such a relief to not have to worry about how we were going to be close to our girl, feed ourselves and to have such a nice place to call home for a while. We feel like it’s the least we could do after all that they did for us. So, PLEASE join us in our collection of pull tabs for RMH Charities, and help others who need a home away from home in their most critical time of need.

AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY RELAY FOR LIFE:
As the battle against cancer has taken many of our friends and family members, this is an important cause to us. Relay For Life is a celebration of those who have survived cancer, a remembrance of those who have been lost to cancer and a commitment to keep fighting to end cancer, all wrapped up in a carnival type atmosphere that features events for the entire family. We participate in fund raising events for both Marshall & McCracken County Relay for Life, as well as attend the celebration events within our counties.
