ATLANTA, GA – Delta Air Lines employees from across the country will build or renovate affordable, single family homes in partnership with Habitat for Humanity International. This year’s fall builds will take place in six cities, including Delta’s hubs in Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City and Seattle as well as in Los Angeles, a key international gateway for the airline. More than 2,400 Delta employees will participate in the projects, which began Sept. 8 and continue through Nov. 7.
“Delta and its employees are committed to making a difference in the communities where we live, work and serve,” said Tad Hutcheson, Vice President of Community Affairs for Delta. “I am proud of our employees for donating their valued time and talents to help families build safe, affordable homes around the globe, while continuing to display the values of our brand.”
Through local and national support, Delta employees have helped build or rehab 214 Habitat homes in 12 countries around the world. Habitat is one of Delta’s core community partners as it acknowledges the need for safe, decent and affordable shelter around the globe. The domestic builds will mark homes 215-221 for Delta.
