10 ACTS of Kindness

Germantown Area Chamber of Commerce

In January, we had the opportunity to be a part the Germantown Chamber Annual Dinner Gala for the 10th year in a row. The Chamber is an organization that we have been a part of since before we even opened our doors, so we were particularly honored this year to be the Presenting Sponsor of the gala. Mike Edwards spoke to attendees about the importance of the chamber and the role they have played in our successful decade. From the Annual Dinner Gala to the inaugural Night Rider bike event, we're proud to support an organization that promotes the best of Germantown.

St. Agnes Academy

This year was our 10th straight year to host the the St. Agnes Academy Senior AP Art Exhibit at our Fountain Place location. The exhibit opened with a reception on April 16th where the student artists took friends and family around the banking center to see their artwork and enjoy refreshments.  Eight artists displayed their work in our Fountain Place Banking Center throughout the month of April. 

Habitat for Humanity

When our 10th anniversary came around, we knew we wanted to celebrate by expanding our volunteer involvement in our communities. So when the opportunity to partner with Habitat for Humanity of DeKalb County came around, we knew it would be a perfect fit. During April, Paragon employees had the opportunity to spend the morning completing home repairs, doing extensive yard work, and painting the exterior of the home of Ms. V, who is chair bound and unable to complete such tasks. We look forward to our next build with Habitat for Humanity!

Hawkins Mill Elementary School

Adopting Ms. Kimberly Martin's class at Hawkins Mill Elementary School is a lesson in love. The 2014-15 school year marks the 10th class that we've adopted, and each one has been incredible.  Everyone on the Paragon team agrees that a visit to Ms. Martin's class is a very special treat, and we look forward to many more. Team Paragon had a blast celebrating the end of the school year with Ms. Martin's 3rd graders. We love having the opportunity to make crafts, have snacks, and play games with this great group of kids. Thanks for 10 great years, Hawkins Mill! 

Make A Wish

Did you know banking professionals are incredibly creative? We've proven this through our partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of the Mid-South. The Paragon team has mastered the art of making that wish-granting moment truly a dream come true. We've recreation a tv game show, built a magical kingdom worthy of a princess, and organized a haunted house. This year we granted our 10th wish by sending Anna and her family to Disney World!

Memphis Child Advocacy Center

We care about all children and supporting the Memphis Child Advocacy Center (MCAC) reflects our commitment to helping kids. The MCAC maintains a network of trained, proactive adults who watch out for kids across our community. We had the opportunity to take a group of Team Paragon members to tour the Center and help with preparations for the "Works of Heart" Gala. 

Book It 5K

Paragon employees and families gathered early on the morning of September 19th to come out and run, walk, and watch the Book It 5K! This race is put on by Holy Communion and supports the Emmanuel Center and Shelby County Books from Birth. We had a great time getting a little exercise, visiting with each other's families, and supporting a great cause on a Saturday morning!
