IKEA Frisco Gives Hearts to Children's
November 30, 2010
IKEA Frisco partnered with Children’s Medical Center to help bring some “heart” to our patients this past Valentine’s Day. IKEA donated 560 FAMNIG HJÄRTA heart shaped pillows to the Legacy and Dallas locations of Children’s Medical Center. Patients visiting either hospital location on Valentine’s Day received a FAMNIG HJÄRTA pillow to take home with them.
Since its founding in 1943, IKEA has offered a wide range of home furnishings and accessories of good design and function, at prices so low that the majority of the people can afford them. IKEA is recognized as a socially responsible company, and continuously supports initiatives that benefit causes such as children and the environment. Currently, IKEA has more than 300 stores in 37 countries, including 37 stores in the United States, where new stores are being planned in Centennial, CO and Somerville, MA.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, Kim Etherington-Reid, Natalia Vagner, April Berg and Elaine Vale from the IKEA store in Frisco donated 560 heart-shaped pillows to the Children's Dallas and Children's at Legacy campuses. Patients at both locations received a special huggable pillow for Valentine's Day this past weekend.
