TechOps building outside of work

More than 300 Delta TechOps employees will volunteer their time over the next three weeks to make homeownership a reality for a local Georgia family through its annual spring Habitat for Humanity build.

The project, titled “Green to Dreams,” is fully funded through sustainability programs, which include recycled oil and aluminum can collections. The volunteers are building the home in Lovejoy, Ga., in partnership with Southern Crescent Habitat for Humanity, one of Habitat for Humanity International’s local affiliates.

The build will run through May 21, and is the fourth TechOps Habitat build funded by the sustainability projects and Delta’s 214th Habitat home.  

"Green to Dreams gives TechOps an avenue and an opportunity to give, to invest in and to reach out to our local community,” said Paul Huber, Program Manager–Safety, Security and Environment. “To see and feel the hearts of these volunteers is a wonderful experience – they exemplify the Delta family."

To date, Delta TechOps has donated more than $340,000 to Habitat for Humanity.

Through local and national support, Delta employees have helped build or rehab 213 Habitat homes in 11 countries around the world. Habitat for Humanity is one of Delta’s core community partners in its Force for Global Good, a program that encourages employees to make a difference in the communities where they live, work and serve.
