Groundbreaking Held For FedEx Family House Expansion

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (localmemphis.com) - Helping families in need! FedEx and Le Bonheur Children's Hospital held a groundbreaking Wednesday to expand the FedEx Family House.

The house opened in 2010 as a place for out-of-town families to stay while visiting Le Bonheur. In recent years, it's run out of space and some families had to be put on a waiting list.

The expansion will add 51 new rooms, tripling its current size. FedEx is contributing $5 million to the $12 million price tag, and is asking for public support in raising the rest.

When the money is raised, the expansion is scheduled to be completed sometime next year.
