FAIRFAX, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
ExxonMobil is pleased to announce today that its employees and companies in the Metropolitan D.C. area have set a campaign record by raising over $2.24 million for non-profits during its recently concluded "Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign."
"Another record breaking campaign by our employees in support of our local health and human services organizations here in Northern Virginia," said Bob Schleckser, 2007 ExxonMobil Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign Chair, and Downstream Treasurer, Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM). "Our employees understand the impact our support has on many local organizations during a critical time of need.

Employees and ExxonMobil this year combined for an increase of 11.1% ($225,490) over the 2006 campaign to help support their favorite non-profit organizations. The ExxonMobil Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign provided employees with the opportunity to give to any charity with 100% of their contribution going to their designated charity.
