AT&T Digital Life and Habitat for Humanity Build House in Seattle Area for Families in Need of a Home + $25 Gift Card Giveaway!

AT&T Digital Life ® and Habitat for Humanity worked together on July 16th to build a house in the Seattle area for families in need of a home. AT&T employee volunteers joined Habitat for Humanity Seattle to help build a house in Renton, Washington. This is the third home build for the collaboration, with future build events planned in Dallas and Los Angeles thanks to a $150,000 donation from Digital Life to Habitat for Humanity.
AT&T volunteers helped with construction on a 9-unit multi-family home at Habitat’s La Fortuna. La Fortuna is located in Renton’s Benson Heights neighborhood, off Petrovitsky Road in an area zoned Residential Multifamily. The property is vacant land within an area of residential homes built from approximately 1960 to 1970. It will provide 41 very-low-income families with both an affordable home and an affordable mortgage in a new housing development in Renton.
