Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) will donate $500,000 to the American Red
Cross and United Way for Hurricane Isaac disaster relief assistance in
Louisiana and Mobile, AL.
“The flooding from the storm has been devastating, particularly in southern
Louisiana,” said Steve Blume, manager, ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Refinery. “We
hope that our donation to the Red Cross and United Way will help the people of
Louisiana and Mobile as they recover.”
ExxonMobil’s donation is being directed to the Louisiana Capital Area Chapter
Red Cross and the Capital Area United Way in Baton Rouge, the United Way of

Isaac,” said Janet Matsushita, plant manager at Chalmette Refining.
