The ExxonMobil Foundation, a division of Exxon Mobil Corp. made a $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross to aid the victims of the devastating floods in the Washington, D.C. area.
The gift to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund will help provide over one thousand families with much needed emergency relief supplies, the company said.
According to news reports, this is the worst flooding the DC area has seen in decades with more than 1,200 families affected or displaced by floods. The Red Cross is providing food, clothing, and shelter to residents that have been forced from their homes.
"Our thoughts are with the residents of Washington, D.C., who are in desperate need of assistance. We applaud the Red Cross for its immediate response and believe it is important to help them continue to provide the practical assistance needed," said Hal Cramer, president of ExxonMobil Fuels Marketing Co. "With almost 4,000 employees living here and our long corporate history in the Washington, D.C. area, this disaster is extremely personal."
ExxonMobil, which operates more than 4,100 Tigermarket, On The Run and Tiger Mart convenience stores, employs more than 4,000 people in the Washington area and supplies fuel to more than 300 stores.
