DALLAS – May 29, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) –AT&T1 Digital Life, a home security and automation service, and Habitat for Humanity are continuing their collaboration to rebuild and revitalize communities around the U.S. This effort kicked off today in Los Angeles with local AT&T employee volunteers helping build a Habitat home in partnership with a low-income family. AT&T Digital Life is planning to support local builds in five cities across the country, including Los Angeles, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami and Newark. These builds will take place throughout the month of June as AT&T Digital Life continues to give back and support local communities.
Digital Life, which offers home security and automation services to customers, continues efforts with Habitat for Humanity to help bring people together to build homes, communities and hope. To amplify these efforts, AT&T will donate a total of $50,000 to the build sites as well as $100,000 to Habitat for Humanity International.
“I’m proud to be a part of this team. With more than 100 AT&T employees volunteering to participate in these builds around the country, there is no question that we believe in this mission,” said Kevin Petersen, senior vice president of AT&T Digital Life. “Digital Life knows home means a great deal to so many in our local communities. Home is where the heart is, and Digital Life is excited to support building and securing these communities.”
“Habitat for Humanity is so grateful to AT&T for supporting our affordable housing work for a second year of partnership,” said Colleen Finn Ridenhour, deputy director of Corporate, Foundation and Institutional Relations at Habitat for Humanity International. “The combination of corporate donations and employee volunteerism reinforces Digital Life’s commitment to community service and enhancing their local communities, and we are honored the company developed an opportunity for customers to impact Habitat’s affordable housing work as well.”
