MEDIA CITY CENTER -- IKEA in Burbank will hold a canned food drive to

benefit Burbank Temporary Aid Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 4

The aid center provides food, clothing, temporary shelter and other


services to hundreds of needy residents each month. Customers who bring

in cans of food will have their names entered into a drawing to win a

catered Swedish dinner for eight in their home.

The drive will fall on the same day as the store’s annual Christmas


tree sale, said IKEA spokeswoman Chrissy Pearce.

“We hope that every customer visiting us to get their Christmas tree

will think about needy families and bring along a few cans to donate,”

she said.

IKEA is at 600 N. San Fernando Blvd.
