Recently American Airlines donated $140,000 to Habitat for Humanity in honor of Paul Morrell, who retired after nearly 40 years with American Airlines. Most recently he served as Vice President – Safety, Regulatory Compliance and Environmental. But Captain Morrell isn’t planning on taking it easy just yet as he recently accepted an open position on our Board of Directors.

“Habitat for Humanity provides an opportunity for us to volunteer, team build and invest in our communities.” Says Morrell. “It changes the lives of those in need through the combined efforts of the families themselves, volunteers and Habitat staff in building and renovating homes and through education and guidance ensuring long term success for these families.”

“We believe in supporting others by building strength and stability in the communities we serve. American Airlines generous gift in honor of Paul tells us they feel the same,” said Habitat President and CEO, Jason Barlow. “We plan to use this substantial donation to build a new home in the Fall with a partner family and also to further our Neighborhood Revitalization efforts.”

Speaking recently in an interview, American’s President Robert Isom said, “Paul has been a cornerstone of our airline for 39 years. He is a passionate advocate for the aviation industry, and has worked tirelessly to support our employees by ensuring we are doing all we can to run a safe operation. We are thrilled to make this donation to Habitat for Humanity in his honor.” – And we’re thrilled to have him on board! Welcome to the Habitat family, Paul!
