Delta Join Alliance Theatre Company

Delta Air Lines will partner with the Alliance Theatre to collect food for
Atlanta`s underprivileged through Hosea Feed the Hungry and Homeless. The
carrier also will offer a monetary gift to the organization and donate 100
tickets to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta to a performance of
“A Christmas Carol.”

Delta will also gather food from employees throughout its Atlanta campus
culminating at Delta Night at the Alliance on Dec. 10. “Delta is Atlanta`s
hometown airline, and it`s important to us to support Atlanta`s families
as well as the arts in this community,” said Lee Macenczak, senior vice
president - Delta`s Sales and Distribution. “We wanted to recognize the
efforts of Delta people make a meaningful contribution to one of our
city`s foremost charitable organizations and invite some of Atlanta`s
children to enjoy the performance with us.”

“The kindness of Delta and the Alliance Theatre will ensure many of
Atlanta`s homeless won`t go hungry this holiday season,” said Elisabeth
Omilami, daughter of the late founder Rev. Hosea L. Williams and a
longtime cast member of “A Christmas Carol.” “We so appreciate the efforts
of both of these organizations and know that through the 28,000 Delta
people working in Atlanta and the Alliance theatre`s attendees, donations
will be great.”

“Hosea Feed the Hungry and Delta have long demonstrated their deep
commitments to feeding the body and the spirit of Atlanta,” said Susan V.
Booth, Artistic Director of the Alliance Theatre. “It is a great honor for
the Alliance to partner with these generous institutional partners through
our production of “A Christmas Carol.”
