Memphis, Tenn., November 12, 2020 – Paragon Bank (OTCBB: PGNN.OB) worked with Make-A-Wish? Mid-South to grant 4-year-old Reniya her wish of shopping spree. This is the 15th consecutive year Paragon has partnered with Make-A-Wish Mid-South to grant the wish of a local child or teen. The event took place Wednesday, October 21, at the bank’s Saddle Creek Banking Center, 7600 Poplar Ave. 

“Granting wishes for local children and teens in the Mid-South is always the highlight of our year,” said Robert Shaw, Chief Executive Officer at Paragon Bank. “We take pride in creating such a magical experience for each child and their family during such a difficult time in their lives.”

Paragon team members put together a drive-thru fall festival for Reniya – including a pumpkin carving and decorating contest, flash mob dance party, team members dressed in fall costumes, concluding in her wish being fulfilled. 

As part of the bank’s Assisting the Community Through Service (A.C.T.S) program, Paragon employees donated their time and efforts to prepare and take part in the event. Additional gift baskets were prepared by staff and provided to Reniya’s siblings. 

“Paragon Bank has been a faithful supporter of Make-A-Wish Mid-South, granting wishes since its inception, 15 years ago,” said Lauren Trowbridge, Corporate Development Officer at Make-A-Wish Mid-South. “We are grateful for the continued kindness and generous donation of time and effort from the Paragon team, which positively impacts a local child each year.”
