Volunteer Engagement in Communities Globally
Our employees serve as community ambassadors, showing up for causes they care deeply about to provide their time, expertise and donations.
In 2022, employees invested thousands of hours volunteering in communities globally, helped fundraise for key community partner causes and donated funds through The Delta Air Lines Foundation Matching Gifts to Education program. Delta people remain a force for creating global change with their unmatched passion and commitment to investing in their communities.

Delta People Honor D-Day Veterans
In June, in partnership with the Best Defense Foundation, Delta veterans escorted 30 World War II veterans on a charter flight to Normandy, France, to commemorate the D-Day invasion. Delta people helped facilitate a week-long program to remember and honor those who were part of the significant turning point for the Allies in World War II. For some honored veterans, many in their mid-90s, it was their first time returning to France since the Normandy landings in 1944. With nearly 9,000 veterans working at Delta and many more continuing to serve in the Guard or Reserves, Delta people were proud to support this momentous occasion.
