On December 5th during their visit to Bastrop, Texas a group of ExxonMobil engineers from the Houston area took time from their busy work schedule to work on a community service project together.
They volunteered at a transitional housing apartment managed by the Family Crisis Center in Bastrop, Texas.
The Family Crisis Center is a nonprofit that provides safe refuge and comprehensive services responsive to the individual needs of women, children, and men who are experiencing domestic violence, sexual assault, or child abuse in Bastrop, Fayette and Lee Counties.
The ExxonMobil team painted a two-bedroom apartment, cleaned four flower beds and planted bushes; they also painted several front door frames of the apartment complex. Some of the residents were so excited they joined in the fun! The special treat was when the children arrived from school and personally went around thanking the volunteers for making their home a nice place to live! What a wonderful Team!
While they had a great time teambuilding, networking and bonding, they left behind a lasting impact on the residents and the Bastrop community.
