IRVING, Texas (Business Wire) -- Exxon Mobil Corporation (NYSE:XOM) announced today it will donate $500,000 to the American Red Cross to provide disaster relief assistance in response to the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma and the southwest United States.

"We extend our heartfelt sympathies to all who have been impacted by the devastating tornadoes," said Rex W. Tillerson, chairman and chief executive officer. “It is our hope that our donation to the Red Cross will help in this very difficult time.”

ExxonMobil's donation is being directed to the American Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund, which provides food, shelter, counseling and other assistance to the victims of this disaster and thousands of other disasters across the country each year.

ExxonMobil's subsidiary, XTO Energy Inc., has a significant presence in Oklahoma and has 250 employees in Oklahoma City, McAlester, Ardmore, Elk City, Ringwood and Tyrone. ExxonMobil Chemical Company has a polypropylene films manufacturing plant in Shawnee, Okla., which has 340 employees.

Exxon Mobil Corporation engages in a range of philanthropic activities that advance education, health and science in the communities where it has significant operations. In 2012, together with its employees and retirees, ExxonMobil, its divisions and affiliates, and the ExxonMobil Foundation provided $256 million in contributions worldwide.
