Exxon Mobil Cares About CHS

Exxon Mobil Day of Caring is next week! This year feels like it has gone by so fast I cannot believe that it is already October. In one week’s time sixty-five Exxon Mobil employees will descend upon CHS for their annual volunteer efforts. They will be giving us our own version of Extreme Home Makeover, most of which I cannot reveal because it is all too exciting. Let’s just say that there will be lots of saws, hammers, shovels, paint and wood. No Ty Pennington though...

The actual day itself is a bit of organized chaos. We plan every detail and then as the event unfolds I have found it best to STAY FLEXIBLE. Things always change last minute and adjustments have to be made. It is always a fun and meaningful experience for everyone involved. We all walk away at the end of the day feeling very accomplished.

This will be my fifth Exxon Mobil effort since I started here at CHS in 2008. Exxon donates an enormous amount of time and dollars each year to Houston organizations. I have certainly seen the results here at CHS. They are always enthusiastic, very organized and efficient. Their efforts have made daily impact on the lives of our CHS children. Each project always is a little different and I have enjoyed working on each one.

Here’s to gearing up for another great Day of Caring....
