Getting what’s needed to those in need.

The ExxonMobil Baton Rouge Chemical Plant houses the world’s largest production unit of isopropyl alcohol – the key ingredient in hand sanitizer products. In a matter of weeks, employees at our Baton Rouge and Port Allen facilities led a massive effort to create a whole new product supply line of medical-grade hand sanitizer to donate to frontline workers and organizations across the state.

Energy to work together.

In Louisiana, we know how to deal with hardship. We get through difficult times by working together, helping each other and doing what’s right. For over 110 years, ExxonMobil employees have worked side by side with the people of Louisiana to overcome floods, hurricanes, famines and illnesses to build a brighter and stronger future for all of us. Together, we have the energy to move forward.
The Southern University Police Department thanks ExxonMobil, our valued community partner, for this donation of 35 gallons of hand sanitizer. As we continue our duties to protect and serve the Southern University community, we also have a duty to protect ourselves and others. Hand sanitizer is a staple during this COVID-19 pandemic. With it not being readily available in large quantities at the beginning of the outbreak, ExxonMobil’s donation was very timely.
Joycelyn M. Johnson, Southern University Chief of Police
We want to thank ExxonMobil for their dedication to a safe and healthy community. As a corporate partner of Capital Area United Way, we are grateful for their commitment to our organization and the local community. Innovation is a key aspect of getting us through this pandemic, and this small but significant gesture will create a great impact, enabling our partners to reopen safely and serve the community as we move toward recovery from this pandemic.
George Bell, Capital Area United Way President/CEO
Over the past three months, the Baton Rouge Health district has collected over 150,000 boxes of PPE equipment needs. These supplies have been essential to help our medical community care for patients in the safest way possible. Partners such as ExxonMobil have been essential to our success, both with generous hand sanitizer donations as well as a vital community resource.
