July Community Life Improvement Events During the month of July, co-workers from the community will be all over the place helping charities that help children.

● On Thursday, July 17, we will be celebrating Christmas in July by taking $1,000 worth of bakeware and dinnerware items over to the kitchen at Hope Haven, a residential facility that helps homeless chemically dependent people and their families get back on their feet.

● On Wednesday, July 23, we'll be celebrating National Hot Dog Day for the second year in a row with the United Way and A Child's Place, which operates a summer camp for homeless children. We'll be taking hot dogs, chips, fruit, water, and reading materials to A Child's Place on National Hot Dog Day.

Swedish Crayfish Party
Imagine a mild late summer evening. Friends gathered around a table set outdoors with bright red crayfish, bread, cheese, shrimps and various pies. And as the sun sets slowly, candles are lit and paper lanterns glow in the increasing darkness. Everyone is wearing paper hats and bibs, singing merry songs to accompany the snaps.

IKEA Charlotte now has a solar energy system!
IKEA, the world’s leading home furnishings retailer, today officially plugged in the solar energy system installed at its store in Charlotte, North Carolina. The 122,000-square-foot PV array consists of a 1,015-kW system, built with 4,228 panels. The IKEA Charlotte program will produce approximately 1,330,000 kWh of clean electricity annually, the equivalent of reducing 938 tons of carbon dioxide (CO2), eliminating the emissions of 195 cars or powering 140 homes yearly.

● Distributed safety kits in Huntersville with the American Red Cross
● Held a document shredding event with the Better Business Bureau
● Hosted residents of Hope Haven for Thanksgiving dinner

Some of the Life Improvement events planned for 2014 include:
● Collaborating with Sow Much Good to distribute fruits, veggies, and cook's tools to teach healthy eating in poorer parts of Mecklenburg County
● Helping to promote the Mecklenburg County Senior Games
● Working on a special project with Time Out Youth

IKEA Charlotte collaborates with Sow Much Good
In March, IKEA Charlotte will collaborate with the Charlotte-based non-profit organization Sow Much Good, which distributes fruits and veggies to areas in Mecklenburg County without access to produce.

Sow Much Good will provide the produce and IKEA will be donating cutting boards, cutlery, and salad spinners. All those items will be distributed to neighborhoods that need them in the county's Davidson and Huntersville communities. Check back for more information!

Check back for more information as the year goes along and find out how IKEA Charlotte and its co-workers are helping to improve people's lives. We are not currently accepting requests at this time.
