Spirit to Serve

At Delta, we think it’s about taking care of the communities where we live and work. Each year our staff collectively donates over 500 hours of labour in our community and raise over $150,000 for local charities like the IWK, Feed Nova Scotia and Bryony House.

 

Since 2009 Delta Barrington and Delta Halifax have raised over $550,000 for Habitat for Humanity and this year, we’re putting ourselves to the test yet again with Raise a Little Hellp 2016!

 

We have two goals this year – to raise $100,000 to support Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia through Raise a Little Hellp and to donate 500 volunteer hours to help build stronger communities.

 

Delta Barrington and Delta Halifax employees are taking part in this challenge to help provide better access to affordable housing, protect the environment, support neighbourhood causes and volunteer.

 

Who is Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia?

Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia is a community-based, not-for-profit, volunteer organization focused on providing affordable, decent home ownership opportunities for low income working nova Scotia families. Our Habitat for Humanity Nova Scotia affiliate was established in 1992 by a group of dedicated volunteers. Since that time, over 45 Habitat homes have been built in Nova Scotia, housing over 150 men, women and children.

 

Why Habitat is a good investment?

An investment in Habitat for Humanity will continue to revolve in the province in perpetuity because families’ mortgage payments are invested in a Fund for Humanity which is used to build more homes. An investment in 15 homes will result in an additional new home each year and every year thereafter.

Location: Delta Halifax Hotel, 1990 Barrington Street

Habitat for Humanity is the most efficient not-for-profit builder in the nation. Our model leverages free volunteer labour, and our established relationships with local suppliers provide us with low-cost and often donated building materials. Sponsor money is used to purchase land, pay fees and permits and subsidize material costs. Hence investment in Habitat for Humanity building programs will result in more affordable homes than would be the case with any other such builder.
