Atlanta USA-based carrier Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL) said that its employees from the Seattle area will join with the City of Auburn Auburn Food Bank and non-profit Kaboom to build a new playground for local children at Brannan Park in Auburn Washington.
According to the carrier, more than 200 volunteers will take part in the build-in-a-day project based on drawings created by local children. The new playground will offer more than 3,400 square feet of play area and will replace existing playground equipment that is more than 30 years old.
The new park will feature slides, a bridge, swings and a see-saw among other playground favorites requested by local children who participated in a design day event in August.
Delta said that the project marks the first of its kind between Delta and the non-profit organization Kaboom, which has already built more than 2,300 playgrounds and renovated 2,000 others throughout North America since its inception in 1996.
Seattle is one of Delta´s fastest-growing international gateways with recently expanded service to 38 peak-day departures to 16 destinations, including seven international cities, the carrier said.
The airline has also invested USD 14m in its facilities at Sea-Tac International Airport, including its recently completed lobby renovations, a new Delta Sky Club, Sky Priority services, new gate area power recharging stations and expanded ticket counters.
Kaboom is a national non-profit focused on building playgrounds.
