:XOM) today announced that its employees and companies in the Metropolitan D.C. area have set an all-time campaign record by raising over $2 million for 202 non-profits during its recently concluded "Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign."

"I am very proud of our employees for their record-breaking support of local health and human services Noun 1. Health and Human Services - the United States federal department that administers all federal programs dealing with health and welfare; created in 1979

 organizations here in Northern Virginia where they live and work," said Jim Hennessy, 2006 ExxonMobil Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign Chair, and Vice President of Sales, ExxonMobil Lubricants and Specialties Company. "Our employees understand the impact our support has on many local organizations during a critical time of need. Their response was record-breaking with 97.75 percent of our employees contributing this year."

Employees and ExxonMobil this year combined for an increase of 7.8 percent ($114,000) over the 2005 campaign to help support their favorite nonprofit organizations. The ExxonMobil Employees' Favorite Charities Campaign provided employees with the opportunity to give to any charity with 100 percent of their contribution going to their designated charity.

Exxon Mobil Corporation provided a corporate contribution that will be distributed to the 202 local health and human services non-profit organizations based on aggregate donations from employees. (Alphabetical listing of these organizations follows.)

The ExxonMobil family has a long history of supporting community groups and educational organizations in the greater Washington area, not only with contributions and grants to targeted organizations, but also with thousands of employees and retirees who volunteer their time and talent to local nonprofits.

Organizations receiving checks ranging from $250 to $18,105.
