PMI Memphis Supports FedExFamilyHouse

FedExFamilyHouse is a home away from home for out-of-town families who come to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital for treatment. Opened in 2010, it is the first facility in Memphis to provide housing for families of patients receiving extended care at our hospital. Every year, PMI Memphis supports FedExFamilyHouse through contributions of money or food and through volunteer service by PMI Memphis members and their families. 

Will you join us this year? Click any of the links below to find details on how to serve. Reach out and set your dates with FedExFamilyHouse. Share back your stories and pictures (with names of people in them) to [email protected]. We would love to celebrate your service in the January or February Chapter meeting.
