As a way of giving back to the community, SM employees in Puerto Princesa City rendered services to their adopted school for Brigada Eskwela 2019.
Mall administration employees, together with different agency personnel from SM City Puerto Princesa, cleaned up rooms and the surroundings of Mandaragat Elementary School. SM volunteers also repainted desks, classroom walls, doors, and fences.
The SM Employee Volunteerism Program spearheaded by SM Cares through the human resources department of SM malls encourages employees to exercise their social responsibility and to directly immerse themselves with the community it is serving.
The project is being done on top of the institutionalized community projects of the company that benefit children, senior citizens, the environment, farmers and persons with disabilities, among others.
SM Cares, a division of SM Foundation, collaborates with communities and various organizations that promote positive change.
Its programs focus on people and the community, environmental sustainability, disaster preparations and resiliency.
