Wrapping up this week, Delta and Aeroméxico volunteers built the 250th home in Mexico as a part of the 14th Global Build with long-standing partner Habitat for Humanity. A supporter of local Habitat organizations since 1995, Delta became a national partner in 2006. Through the national partnership, Delta volunteers have helped build or rehabilitate a total of 253 homes in 12 countries around the world.
“It has been a monumental year for our partnership with Habitat for Humanity, and I am thrilled about all the employees and customers who have donated not only their time and talents, but a piece of their hearts, in helping to build 19 homes with families in need of affordable housing in 2017,” said Tad Hutcheson, managing director of Community Affairs at Delta.
This year alone, Delta volunteers have built or rehabilitated in Mexico and cities across the United States:
Chulavista, Mexico: Just this week, a team of 70 volunteers, including 47 Delta employees, two of which are retirees, 16 Aeroméxico employees and seven SkyMiles customers, traveled to Mexico to help build six more homes in Chulavista, including the 250th Delta home. Working with the families, volunteers focus on building the foundation, kitchen and two rooms of the homes in Chulavista. Following the April trip to build six homes during the 13th Delta Global Build with a team of 65 Delta and Aeroméxico volunteers and customers, Delta has built a total of 12 homes in this small community near Puerto Vallarta.
