Decorating for the Holidays at FedExFamilyHouse and the Ronald McDonald House
The FedEx Pilots' Wives recently brought a little Christmas Cheer to the families spending the holidays at the FedExFamilyHouse. The members completely transformed both buildings by decorating 15 trees, wreaths, and stockings on each family's door, poinsettias on each table, garland on the staircases and a wreath and stockings on the fireplace. They placed a full-size sleigh in the lobby that they filled with toys the children can choose from. Their donations all funded the exterior lighting of both buildings in the holiday spirit. The parents are so happy to be able to give their children a little bit of the holiday season when they are so far from home.
The Ronald McDonald House does things a little different, and many companies from around the city sponsor one of the dozens of trees at the House. Each year, some of our FEPWA members decorate the tree that is found in the room sponsored by FEPWA, the Teenagers room.
FEPWA Invades the Ronald McDonald House for Halloween
On October 3, the ladies of FEPWA descended on the Ronald McDonald House of Memphis with Halloween decorations and candy in hand. An annual tradition, our organization brings a little spooky to the children and families at RMH. Click here to see more pictures from the day and our monthly "On a Roll" Campaign.
Largest number of ladies to attend Welcome Back Luncheon
The FedEx Pilots’ Wives Association Board of Directors hosted new and old members at the Bobby Lanier Farm Park Pavilion on Thursday, September 12, 2019. Over 95+ women were in attendance, the largest crowd to date for this event. While getting to meet members, the ladies enjoyed dining on delicious food and drinks provided by the FEPWA Board of Directors. Members learned about the upcoming events planned for this year including a Night Hub Tour at FedEx, a tour at St. Jude Children’s Hospital, decorating for Halloween at the Ronald McDonald House, and Christmas & Hanukah decorating at FedExFamilyHouse. The committee heads have planned a full calendar this year as well with events scheduled for Book Club, LCR, Bunco, Lunch Bunch, Movie Club and the Coffee Connections. The ladies were also introduced to all of the opportunities made available throughout the year to raise money for RMH and FEFH including the annual Fundraiser Party to be held at The Children's Museum of Memphis on March 7, 2020.
