The article focuses on the examples of tsunami relief efforts from the convenience store/petroleum industry. These examples are seemingly endless, from large-scale international efforts of Big Oil companies like ExxonMobil, ChevronTexaco and BP to the grassroots donation drives of mom-and-pop stores such as the Ma & Pa's Grocery Express in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. ExxonMobil Chemical Co., which employs approximately 5,000 people in India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand and has oil and gas production and petroleum and petrochemical refining and distribution businesses in those countries, contributed $5 million to assist relief efforts, as well as matching employee and retiree contributions around the world.
