         In celebration of Earth Day on April 22, 2013, over 100 DIRECTV
         employees will join forces with Habitat for Humanity to build a
         series of homes located on a parcel of land at the intersection of E.
         Colton and Brazil in North Las Vegas. In addition to providing for
WHAT:   building materials, DIRECTV volunteers will work side by side with
         future Habitat homeowners to construct simple, decent, affordable
         homes for hard working, low-income individuals in Southern Nevada.
         The project, while still in its early stages, will eventually house
         six deserving families, with an estimated completion date of November
         2013. All of the homes will be Energy Star and WaterSmart certified.

WHEN:    Monday, April 22, 2013 from 10am-2pm

WHERE:   2805 E. Colton Ave. North Las Vegas, NV 89030

Humanity Executive Director, Meg Delor. 100 DIRECTV Volunteers.


“Habitat for Humanity’s continuing efforts to strengthen the Las Vegas
community are needed now more than ever to stabilize struggling families,”
said Meg Delor, Executive Director. “With every new family that moves in with
ambitions to create a better life, Southern Nevada becomes a safer, more
vibrant place to call home. DIRECTV volunteers are more than just a group of
people contributing their time to construct a house. They are helping build a
community that learns how teamwork can fulfill dreams. Bridges are built
between people, as well as the satisfaction of being part of a life changing
experience.”
