Intrado team supports housing projects
Intrado, a Colorado-based company that assures 911 emergency alert systems work in America, sent 18 volunteer workers to assist in remodeling Delta’s Hope House and a second family home in Lazear this past week. This is the third year Intrado has supported the work of Habitat for Humanity in Delta County. Brian Davenport, an employee of Intrado and son of Fred Davenport, a local builder in Delta, organized the philanthropic endeavor. Part of the team worked with local Habitat volunteers to paint, build an addition and remove old windows and faulty shingles at 260 Howard Street in Delta. Habitat is partnering with Drug-Free Delta County (DFDC) to provide transitional housing for persons in recovery from substance abuse. Earlier in the week, Habitat local volunteers Ed Bliss, Fred Davenport, Charlie Bishop, Felix Trujillo and Steve Herrera poured a foundation and pad for a new addition to the DFDC facility. The Intrado team also completely sheetrocked and replaced windows on a needy family’s home in Lazear.
