    PMI Memphis Provides Comfort and Hope with FedExFamilyHouse

    Each quarter, the PMI Memphis Chapter volunteers at the FedExFamilyHouse providing comfort and hope to patients and their families by hosting meals and fun activities. FedExFamilyHouse is a home away from home for out-of-town families with children receiving treatment at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital. 

    The FedExFamilyHouse celebrated its 10th anniversary by hosting more than 160,000 family members since opening while their child is treated at Le Bonheur. 

    FedExFamilyHouse offers:

    • Private suites with bedroom, sunroom and large bathroom
    • Children and teen play areas
    • Outdoor spaces to dine and relax
    • Four full-sized kitchens and pantry space for each family
    • Free laundry facilities

     

    In December 2019, Santa and Mrs. Clause delighted all with a surprise visit, breakfast was served, carols sung to lift spirits and stockings filled with goodies given to the children.

    In June, during the recent crisis of COVID-19 when donations slowed and physical volunteering wasn’t possible, PMI Memphis continued to provide comfort to families through a delicious, catered meal from Rizzo’s.
