Exclamation Folsom Zoo - IKEA Challenge, Need Your Votes

Dear IKEAFANS: Voting ended 1/20/12. The winner will be announced February 4. Thank you for your votes! FolsomZooFans

Folsom Zoo seeking help from community, IKEA

FOLSOM, CA - The Folsom City Zoo Sanctuary is one of three organizations competing to win a $10,000 IKEA grant. The organization that receives the highest number of text votes by Jan. 20 wins the contest. Zoo staff would use the funds for a makeover of the Zoo’s log cabin classroom, according to city officials.

“We’re asking residents and Zoo lovers to text LIFE76 to 62345 once each day through Jan. 20,” says Zoo Manager Jocelyn Smeltzer. “Spread the word to your friends, co-workers, classmates and family through email, texting, blogging, Facebook, Twitter and Yelp.”

The IKEA Life Improvement Challenge gives IKEA co-workers an opportunity to improve the lives of others through the planning, proposal and execution of a community project. Every IKEA store receives a $10,000 allowance for a community project.

“Co-workers from the IKEA store in West Sacramento submitted a proposal to makeover the zoo’s log cabin classroom, and to provide new, interactive signage on Zoo Sanctuary pathways,” said Smeltzer. “We’re excited that our project is one of three selected to complete to win the $10,000 prize. Now we need the community to support the Zoo by voting.”

The log cabin makeover would enhance the ability to educate children and would include a kitchenette and much needed storage. The new interpretive signage would include hand-sculpted, colorful ceramic imprints of the animals.

More information is at Friends of the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary

Thank you for making a difference!
