IKEA in Hicksville is celebrating Summer with some wonderful events for the kids.
Not only are they providing some FREE Family Fun for their IKEA FAMILY card members but, they are giving back to our community. Did you know that on any given night there are 2,000 children in homeless shelters in Nassau and Suffolk counties? “At IKEA, children are the most important people in the world, so IKEA looks to support programs that make a difference in the lives of the many children. For this reason, IKEA Long Island is partnering with Long Island Coalition for the Homeless to donate 500 backpacks to homeless children. We are also doing a school supply drive throughout the month of July to fill those backpacks.”
Earth Day is a day to celebrate our love for our one and only planet and talk about ways to protect it in our community.
Here on Long Island there is a lot of fun events happening and we have a great list of places you can go to celebrate Earth Day this year.
*Please note we have listed the events from public sites and changes can occur at any time. Please check the particular location’s website/ social media pages for any updates regarding weather or date/time changes ahead of your arrival*
The Pajama Party to Protect Children is an evening of family fun to benefit less fortunate children across Long Island.
Everyone’s encouraged to attend in their pajamas and enjoy free range of the museum after hours, arts & crafts, story time, live animals, prizes, food, and more while supporting a great cause! The event will be held on Saturday, September 24th from 6 to 9pm at the Long Island Children’s Museum.
