Ronald McDonald House and FEPWA
FEPWA Volunteers at RMH Parents Night In
We helped make heart-shaped pizzas, crafted, painted, played, told and learned LOTS of jokes, made new friends and chased/snuggled busy toddlers. The highlight of the night was playing with one of our littlest pals from November who has made HUGE progress in his treatment. Please join us next time, it’s the most rewarding and enjoyable way to volunteer your time.
Ronald McDonald House
In 1987, FEPWA adopted the Ronald McDonald House as our primary charity when it was just in the planning stages and we became one of their founding partners. The Ronald McDonald House of Memphis began construction in 1990 and opened its doors in 1991. FEPWA has sponsored one of their family suites and also their teen recreation room, which we decorated with a beach theme. Every year FEPWA decorates the Ronald McDonald House for Halloween.
Ronald McDonald House Charities of Memphis, at no charge to their guests, provides supportive services and “keeps families close” while children are receiving treatment for cancer and other catastrophic childhood illnesses at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Since opening its doors in 1991, Ronald McDonald House of Memphis has provided a home for more than 9,400 children from nearly every state and 45 countries.
