Whether from the national or local government units, state workers are up for treats this weekend as the Philippines celebrates the 120th Philippine Civil Service Anniversary to recognize and thank almost 2-million-strong government workers who respond to everyday challenges amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Government workers are required to present their government agency ID or UMID card, and in the case of SM, the SM Advantage Card, to avail of the discounts.
