Essential service for those serving others


When the U.S. Air Force started running low on hand sanitizer during the coronavirus pandemic, ExxonMobil quickly stepped in with a 10,000-gallon donation to help keep service members safe and healthy.

That’s enough hand sanitizer for nearly 5 million 4-ounce bottles.

To fulfill this commitment, the company reconfigured operations at its Baton Rouge-area facilities, which are home to the world’s largest production site of isopropyl alcohol, a key ingredient in hand sanitizer.

The company quickly produced 160,000 gallons of hand sanitizer to donate across the country.

Members of ExxonMobil’s Veteran Advocacy and Support Team were on hand as the hand sanitizer was shipped from Baton Rouge to the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New Orleans, in Belle Chasse, Louisiana. Teams then unloaded and transferred all 10,000 gallons to an awaiting C-130 aircraft, which delivered the crucial product to bases around the country.
