The Great Delta Give-Back: Making a Difference One Day at a Time
The Great Delta Give-Back was launched in April this year, giving employees a paid day off to volunteer at charitable organizations worldwide.
Already, Delta employees have dedicated the equivalent of four years in volunteer hours serving communities across the globe, continuing Delta’s mission of connecting people and changing the world for the better.
Delta employees and workgroups have made significant impacts through their days of service:
- Over 1,300 employees have already volunteered.
- Delta people have served in over 600 communities worldwide.
- Over 13,000 hours dedicated to volunteering have made a difference.
In 2018, Delta and The Delta Air Lines Foundation contributed over $50 million through the airline's commitment to give one percent of its net profits to key charitable organizations. The airline focuses on key areas such as education, health and wellness, military and veterans, sustainability and diversity and inclusion.
