ExxonMobil donates $500,000 to flood relief in Louisiana, US

IRVING, US: ExxonMobil Corporation said that it will donate $500,000 to the American Red Cross and the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank to support local flooding disaster relief assistance in Louisiana, US.

ExxonMobil employs more than 5,500 employees and contractors in the Baton Rouge area where it has operated for more than 100 years. Baton Rouge employees spend more than 40,000 hours volunteering in the community each year supporting 168 local organizations. Annually, the company donates about $5 million to agencies and schools in the Baton Rouge area.

The Red Cross provides food, shelter, counseling and other assistance to the victims of disasters. The agency has supported more than 10,000 people at over 50 shelters during this response effort. The Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank services an 11-parish service area provides food to 130 agencies and distributed more than 8.7 million meals in 2015. The agency’s food warehouse was severely impacted from the flooding.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with our friends and neighbors in Louisiana who have been impacted by storms and severe flooding in the region," said Rex Tillerson, chairman and CEO of Exxon Mobil Corporation. “We hope that this donation will help provide some relief to Louisianans as recovery efforts begin."
