XTO Energy Donates $49,000 to Volunteer Fire Departments in East Texas

TYLER, Texas—XTO Energy Inc., a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, today announced it has contributed $49,000 to 36 volunteer fire departments across East Texas to help fund their day-to-day operations and emergency services.
