More than 300 employees participated in the #GiveThem20 challenge last week in support of the U.S. Military.
#GiveThem20 is an initiative of American Corporate Partners, a nonprofit organization that is focused on helping returning military build their next careers. Participation in the campaign is a way to “salute” veterans by dedicating 20 push-ups, sit-ups, jumping jacks or another move of choice.
Delta was nominated by Expedia to participate in the social media campaign that has already received hundreds of thousands of videos since launching in May.
Delta people from across the company were filmed participating at 19 different Atlanta facilities, including the Technical Operations Center, Operations Customer Center, Worldport, Customer Engagement Center, In-Flight Training Center and Delta Flight Museum.
“I am very proud of the support the Delta team worldwide provides for our returning service members,” said Jim Graham, V.P.–Flying Operations and Chief Pilot. “Participating in the #GiveThem20 challenge is one more way Delta is able to show our gratitude to those who sacrifice so much for us.”
Delta is committed to supporting the armed services members and veterans nationwide proudly shows its support of military men and women throughout the year by volunteering time and resources to give back to those who sacrifice so much for others.
Delta has nominated Microsoft to participate in the #GiveThem20 challenge.
