Delta is recognized as one of the 50 most community-minded companies in the U.S. as an honoree of The Civic 50 by Points of Light for the fifth year in a row.
For the fifth year in a row, Delta ranked the No.1 corporate blood drive sponsor with the American Red Cross for blood donations. Delta employees, retirees and customers contributed a record 14,743 units of blood.1
Delta’s efforts in the community were recognized by the Corporate Volunteer Council (CVC) of Atlanta. Our partnership with West Atlanta Watershed Alliance (WAWA) and the Atlanta Braves to restore a baseball field in Buck Mountain, one of the oldest Black communities in Atlanta’s historic Westside, was recognized as the IMPACT Corporate Project of the Year.
1 The Blood Drive year is based on the Red Cross fiscal year, therefore, the #1 ranking and units of blood total end on June 30, 2022.
