Five local nonprofit organizations to benefit from more than 1,000 volunteer hours
IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ExxonMobil Dallas-area employees will volunteer more than 1,000 hours at five local nonprofit organizations during the company’s annual Week of Action.
From October 10 to 16, employees will offer their time and talent to support projects and programs at Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity, Junior Achievement of Dallas, North Texas Food Bank, Reading Radio Resources and Girls Inc. of Metropolitan Dallas.
“ExxonMobil employees have a long history of giving back to the communities where we live and work,” said Rex W. Tillerson, chairman and chief executive officer, Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM). “Volunteering through our Week of Action is one of the many important ways our employees aid nonprofit organizations in providing critical services to our friends and neighbors.”
Week of Action is part of ExxonMobil’s annual Employees’ Favorite Charities Campaign, in which nonprofit organizations in Collin, Dallas, Denton, Ellis, Hunt, Johnson, Kaufman, Rockwall, Tarrant and Van Zandt counties are eligible to receive employee and retiree gifts. ExxonMobil will also provide a corporate contribution to many organizations providing health and human services.
Last year, ExxonMobil and its employees and retirees contributed more than $1.6 million to more than 200 charities through the inaugural Employees’ Favorite Charities Campaign. ExxonMobil’s Week of Action serves to extend monetary giving by matching employees and agencies with opportunities to support the community through hands-on volunteering.
