Delta Air Lines Employees To Build Habitat For Humanity Homes In Six Cities

ATLANTA, Sept. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) employees from across the country will roll up their sleeves to partner with Habitat for Humanity by building new or renovated affordable single family homes in six Delta cities including its hubs in Atlanta, Detroit, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York City as well as in key international gateway cities Los Angeles and Seattle. More than 2,000 Delta employees will participate in the build projects, which begin Sept. 4 and continue through Nov. 1, 2013.

"Delta people are unified in our resolve to serve the people of the communities where we live, work and serve each day," said Tad Hutcheson, Delta's vice president – Community Affairs. "Through our relationship with Habitat for Humanity, we've helped more than 100 families with safe, affordable homes around the globe though our employee's selfless dedication and eagerness to live the values of our brand."

Delta's contribution to the Seattle area home is 100 percent funded by proceeds from Delta's in-flight recycling program. It is the fifth home Delta has funded by recycling customer aluminum cans, plastic bottles and other recyclable materials from passenger flights. Nearly 1 million pounds of passenger consumer products were recycled in 2012, and more than 7 million pounds have been recycled since the start of the program in 2007. Employee volunteers will dedicate their time and talent to build a fully accessible home with a local family of four that includes twin boys with cerebral palsy. 

The Atlanta build site is among the last homes which will complete a subdivision built entirely by Habitat for Humanity volunteers located in Jonesboro, Ga. Delta's employees have proudly built 15 of the homes in the neighborhood since 2008. 

"Delta has been a fantastic partner over the years and we're thankful for the efforts they continue to make to help families obtain decent, affordable homes," said Jonathan Reckford, CEO of Habitat for Humanity International. "It's inspiring to see the level of engagement from Delta employees and their culture of dedicated service in communities around the country."

Delta and Habitat for Humanity's relationship has grown steadily since 2000. Habitat is one of Delta's core community partnerships in its Force for Global Good which encourages employees to unite under a shared mission to make a difference in the communities where they live, work and serve. Delta employees have helped more than 100 families receive safe, decent and affordable homes in eight countries around the world. More than 9,800 Delta people have contributed over 92,000 volunteer hours raising walls, digging foundations, laying brick, installing roofs, painting and other construction-related activities.
