For the second year, Le Bonheur Children’s is one of 11 children’s hospitals across the country participating in a friendly competition – the annual Professional Nursing Council’s Cereal Drive -- to fill local food banks. In collaboration with the Mid-South Food Bank and the Boy Scouts of America, the drive will be held May 31-June 7.
Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital recently received a $400,000 donation from Thomas & Betts. The gift is one of three Pileggi Awards presented in May to local non-profit organizations by Thomas & Betts in honor of Dominic Pileggi.
The Children’s Foundation of Memphis has donated $4 million to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital to fund key research infrastructure and support in the hospital’s Children’s Foundation Research Institute (CFRI). The Children’s Foundation pledged $4 million, with $2 million designated as a challenge grant intended to encourage matching funds from other foundations, organizations and individuals.
