Community impact in the Baytown Area
For more than 100 years, ExxonMobil has devoted its energy to not only operating safely, but also to being an important part of the community.
Starting almost immediately, our predecessor, the Humble Oil Company, constructed schools, roads, houses and places of gathering for the community. Today, we remain committed to upholding traditions of service and engagement. As more than just near neighbors, we are community partners, and we strive to make contributions that support and strengthen our local communities. After all, we live and work here, too.
ExxonMobil Baytown is proud to take a leadership role in important community initiatives such as United Way and Relay for Life. Each year, more than 1,000 ExxonMobil employees volunteer with these and other area organizations that strengthen our community and contribute to the livelihood and well-being of our neighbors.
Annually, Baytown area employees, retirees and their families contribute thousands of hours volunteering at more than 200 organizations. In recognition of these efforts, ExxonMobil contributed $150,000 in 2021 to non-profit organizations where they volunteered. Area charitable contributions totaled more than $1.1 million in 2021.
In addition, ExxonMobil, employees and retirees raised $1.3 million for the 2021 United Way of Greater Baytown Area and Chambers County Campaign.
ExxonMobil also continues to help build a stable local economy. ExxonMobil Baytown area contributes more than $7 billion to the regional economy, including nearly 15,000 direct and indirect jobs. We pay more than $150 million in the form of property, sales, fees and special district taxes.
