Delta® is also firmly committed to participating in, and supporting, a variety of community-based organizations, including the following:
Delta is pleased to be a part of the brand new Bob the Builder — Project: Build It exhibit. Launching at The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, this exhibit will make its way around the US and Canada over the next few years.
The Bob the Builder — Project: Build It exhibit will bring Bob's world filled with colorful characters, sensational sets and imaginative, entertaining and inspiring teamwork and “green” themes from the popular television series by HIT Entertainment to life for girls and boys and their families. Delta's involvement will help kids learn about the importance and how-to's of water conservation.
Here children will be able to fix, decorate and pretend with hands-on activities that were inspired directly from the new Bob the Builder animated show. ALL senses will be stimulated as boys and girls build, learn and play in the Bob the Builder exhibit to help their favorite builder and his team of animated machines get the job done.

Delta Faucet Company teamed with the Indiana Industrial Operators Association, Inc. (IIOA) to distribute T-shirts to children during the Earth Day Indiana Festival in April 2005. Children were also able to learn about the importance of water quality from Delta employees and IIOA representatives while decorating shirts with the water cycle. This program was part of a full day of festivities including music, food and other activities highlighting the importance of preserving the environment.
The IIOA is an association of industrial wastewater operators primarily located in the State of Indiana. Its mission is to provide technical education to its members and general education to the public through Community Outreach projects like participation at the Earth Day Indiana Festival.
United Way — In 2004, Delta associates opened their hearts and wallets to exceed the 2003 fundraising goal of $62,000. Employees in Indianapolis contributed a total of $65,188 to the United Way. These two well-known community support groups donate time, money and effort to a wide variety of non-profit groups, from Boy Scout troops to education and job programs and disaster relief. Delta's facilities in Indianapolis and Greensburg, Indiana; Chickasha, Oklahoma, and Jackson, Tennessee have long been involved in the annual campaigns for both organizations. The Greensburg plant has been working with the local United Fund since 1960, the first year the plant was fully operational. In addition to payroll pledges, Delta employees hold bake sales, silent auctions, basketball tournaments and other fun activities to raise money. The October 2004 campaign will bring out the best in Delta employees once again, as they dedicate their time and money to help the United Way.
Habitat for Humanity — 2005 marked the tenth year Delta has helped Habitat make the dream of home ownership come true for those who might otherwise never have a place of their own. Recipients of Habitat homes must not only be employed and able to make payments, they have to put in "sweat equity" by helping build the house they receive. 2005 also marked the sixth year Delta employees will volunteer to help a family construct their dream home. The company donates all the faucets and showers used in Indianapolis Habitat homes as well as many other communities around the country. Since 1976, Habitat has built and remodeled more than 125,000 homes worldwide for low-income families.
Other community programs Delta and Brizo support include the Pathway Family Center and Indiana Black Expo. Pathway is a fully accredited, licensed facility for the treatment of teen substance abuse. The program focuses on prevention, early intervention, treatment and family counseling. Delta is also a corporate partner of Indiana Black Expo. IBE was founded in 1970 to be an effective voice and vehicle for the social and economic advancement of African Americans.
