Ikea gives former foster kids a head start
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Ikea helped out young people transition out of foster care by donating 110 bags filled with Ikea products.
The Ikea "starter kits" included sheets, a comforter, pots and pans, towels and other in-home necessities.
"To be able to help young people establish a comfortable and welcoming home for themselves is a great fit with our vision and our business idea. Ikea is happy to be able to support these young adults and we hope it makes a difference in their lives," said Martin Grieder, distribution anager of the IKea Tejon Ranch Distribution Center. "At Ikea, we believe in helping to create a better everyday life for the many people."
