Regions Honors Peggy Nelson with February Better Life Award

Associate makes memories for those with special needs and volunteers on causes across South Alabama

She and her family volunteer as guides for the annual Making Memories Hunt, an event where people with special needs — including wheelchair-bound children and wounded warriors — get the chance to hunt for a day. Regions is donating $1,000 for the Making Memories Hunt to the Quality Deer Management Association-Gulf Coast, the nonprofit organization that coordinates the event.
