As a longstanding member of the Greenpoint community, ExxonMobil seeks to make real and enduring contributions for the benefit of our families, colleagues and neighbors.
Angels bring the heat!
Ever have lunch with an Angel?
This year ExxonMobil once again supported the North Brooklyn Angels in their quest to alleviate food insecurity in our community. The first annual Neighbors Helping Neighbors luncheon, held at the Warsaw, sponsored by Broadway Stages, and supported by ExxonMobil, was a great success, raising over $130,000 for the Angels. At the luncheon, Borough President Eric Adams, restaurateur Josh Cohen, and Ana Oliviera, Marketing Executive for Investors Bank, were honored as Neighbors of the Year for their steadfast support of this important program.
Students from the Brownsville Culinary Community Center, whose mission is to address issues around food scarcity by offering healthy, accessible cuisine to neighborhood residents, prepared and served the delicious lunch. The Center offers a culinary training program designed to educate and inspire participants to excel in the food-service industry.
The funds raised at the luncheon will go a long way to helping the Angels achieve their goal of providing over 50,000 meals in North Brooklyn this year. ExxonMobil is proud to be a supporter of the Angels, and wish them the best of luck in attaining their worthy goal!
Angels in North Brooklyn
The North Brooklyn Angels are a volunteer-powered, hyper-local, grassroots non-profit organization that addresses hunger, poverty, homelessness and housing instability in North Brooklyn.
The Angelmobile, a mobile soup kitchen, serves hot lunches five days a week at various locations around the neighborhood. In addition to feeding people, the Angelmobile hosts, housing counsellors, healthcare advocates, and community representatives from local city council offices to assist local residents. The Angelmobile also distributes informative materials, flyers, clothes, books, toys, and personal care products to those in need.
The Angelmobile program is possible as a result of the generosity of volunteers and supporters including Mt. Carmel Parish, the Episcopal Ministries of Long Island and Norm and Elaine Brodsky. ExxonMobil is also a supporter of the North Brooklyn Angels, and we encourage our civic-minded neighbors to consider supporting this commendable community organization.

Students Soar at Space Camp
The John Ericsson Magnet School for Environmental Engineering seeks to spark student interest in real world application of STEM principles through its Air and Space Science Club program. The year-long program provides students with the chance to explore space science and various aeronautics topics created by NASA. At the end of the year, students can attend a space camp where they share and expand on their interest in space science with other students their age from around the world. The Air and Space Science Club provides students with an outlet for their scientific curiosity as well as the opportunity to build relationships with like-minded peers.
This year, as part of its commitment to STEM education, Exxon Mobil sponsored 12 students from grades 6 – 8 to attend Cosmodome, a space science center in Montreal, Canada. The week-long, overnight space camp program is only one of five in the world. Cosmodome features NASA vehicle simulators and augmented gravity activities. It also serves as a space museum, housing one of two lunar rocks on display in Canada.
