DALLAS, May 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- 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 will kick off in Los Angeles on Thursday, May 28, 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 $150,000 to support Habitat for Humanity's mission.
"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."
