 ExxonMobil employees and retirees raised a record $13.41 million for the United Way of Greater Houston during its 2013 community campaign, which was the largest amount raised by the company since its annual campaigns began in 1952.

“We are so grateful for our dear friends at ExxonMobil for their extraordinary generosity and support of the United Way of Greater Houston and our community,” said Anna M. Babin, president and CEO of United Way of Greater Houston. “Their incredible leadership and commitment sets an example for us all and truly helps families thrive, children achieve academic success, seniors remain independent and individuals rebuild their lives.”

The contributions support the work of the United Way Greater Houston, which includes helping families gain financial stability, making sure students achieve academic success and giving seniors the support they need to remain independent. United Way Bright Beginnings, for example, is an innovative early education program designed to support children from lower-income families. The program’s objective is to help children achieve social, emotional, physical and cognitive milestones to be able
to enter school ready to succeed.

In addition to raising money, employees and retirees volunteered nearly 40,000 hours to support United Way and its affiliate agencies in a wide range of programs. “I congratulate our current and retired employees for their efforts to support the greater Houston community through the United Way,” said Neil Duffin, president of ExxonMobil Development Company. “Campaign leaders and volunteers work throughout the year to raise awareness of the United Way and find innovative ways to raise money to fund the many programs that give hope to the people of Houston. Making positive contributions to society is central to the way we do business, and our partnership with the United Way is an important part of that commitment.”

ExxonMobil employees also donated money and volunteered their time for many other nonprofit organizations in the Houston area. This is consistent with the company’s commitment to support programs that help improve the quality of life in the greater Houston community.
