ExxonMobil Campaign Raises $2.8 Million for Metropolitan D.C. Charities
FAIRFAX, Va. -- ExxonMobil employees in the Metropolitan D.C. area raised a record $2.8 million during its 2010 Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign.
Surpassing last year's amount of $2.7 million, this year's donations will go to more than 500 local community and charitable organizations, with nearly half qualifying for ExxonMobil's charitable matching program, the company stated. Two hundred and thirty-three local non-profit organizations that provide health and human services will not only receive the individual donations made by employees but will receive contributions from ExxonMobil as well, the company added.
"This is a significant achievement, especially in these tough economic times when funding for many worthy organizations has declined while demand for their services has increased," Debra King, chair of the 2010 ExxonMobil Employees’ Favorite Charities Campaign said in the released statement. "Once again, our employees have continued their proud tradition of giving in the communities where we live and work."
ExxonMobil has a long history of supporting community groups and educational organizations within the greater Washington D.C. area and has raised nearly $19 million since 2002 with its Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign.
