MARKSVILLE, LA – Paragon Casino Resort has donated $20,000 to the Marksville Fire Department. The donation will be used to complete repairs on the fire department’s tall ladder truck, which regularly services the Marksville area.

“As the General Manager of Paragon Casino Resort, it’s a privilege and a responsibility to contribute to the welfare and well-being of our community,” said Marshall Ray Sampson, Paragon Casino Resort General Manager. “This donation is a reflection of the importance we place on supporting those who dedicate themselves to our neighbors and the importance of having top-notch equipment to service the needs of our community … this contribution is just a small token of our thanks to them for their service.”

The donation is one of the ways that Paragon Casino Resort has worked to assist the community. The casino Resort has a long history of investing in the communities that surround the Tunica-Biloxi reservation, which owns and operates Paragon Casino Resort.

“We are profoundly grateful for the generous donation from our Paragon Casino Resort,” said Marksville Fire Chief Jerry Bordelon. “Their support not only strengthens our firefighting capabilities but also underscores the importance of community collaboration in safeguarding lives and property. With their contribution, we can continue our mission to serve and protect, ensuring that our community remains safe and resilient in the face of any challenge.”
