IKEA Seattle Community Support Foundation partnered with Morningside Academy for our Community Build Day on Saturday, February 29th! Morningside Academy was chosen by The IKEA Charity Support Program to receive IKEA products to support Community Build Day. “We are honored to be recognized by IKEA for the work we are doing in the community,” said Morningside Academy Founder and Executive Director, Kent Johnson.

Since 1980, Morningside Academy has been a champion of change for struggling students with learning differences and the need for specialized instruction. Designing on a dime, Morningside Academy always provides a top-notch learning environment and invests highly in their students’ growth. Now, thanks to IKEA and our growing list of sponsors, we’ve refreshed our domain with a more modern design.

Thank you to all of our Morningside families and friends who came out February 29th, 2020, and joined IKEA & the Morningside Community to support this local establishment and be a champion for change. If you would like to support Morningside Academy in future events, please contact Blue Lazarou, Director of Development, 206-709-9500,
