IKEA in the Community
IKEA Charlotte continues making a difference

IKEA Charlotte continues to make a difference in the lives of others in the Charlotte region.

In early December, we partnered with Charlotte-Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control for our first IKEA Charlotte Animal Adoption event. We gave away coffee and cinnamon buns to people who came to adopt as well as goodie bags with items from our LURVIG pet line for people who took home their forever pets.

Later in December, we worked with the Latin American Coalition on a makeover of their Refugee Welcome Center.

In early January, we are partnering with Central Piedmont Community College to transform a 10' x 10' meeting room on its campus into a Collegiate Recovery (CRC) room, where students in recovery from addictions can hold support meetings.

In February, we'll once again partner with AAA of the Carolinas Safety Foundation to distribute safety vests in response to Charlotte's growing pedestrian fatality problem. This year, we've targeted the North Tryon Street corridor and are planning to hand out safety vests and other safety material and information on Wednesday, Feb. 20th.

Check back for more events and information about how IKEA Charlotte is working with community organizations to improve the lives of people in the Charlotte region.

Send a message of hope this holiday season

When you send a UNICEF Holiday Greeting Card, you can help bring hope, health, and happiness to children around the world.

Select from a variety of cards and feel good knowing that 100% of the proceeds from sales of UNICEF cards goes to the US fund for UNICEF.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) works in 190 counties and territories to save and improve children’s lives, providing health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more. The U.S Fund for UNICEF supports UNICEF’s work through fundraising, advocacy, and education in the United States. Together, we are working toward the day when ZERO children die from preventable causes and every child has a safe and healthy childhood.

IKEA Charlotte now has a solar energy system!

Creating a sustainable life for our community
IKEA Charlotte solar energy system!

IKEA, the world’s leading home furnishings retailer, has solar energy system installed in 41 stores in the US contributing to the solar presence atop nearly 90% of our US locations, and a total generation goal of 40 MW and IKEA Charlotte is part of this program.
