As part of their employee volunteerism program, employees of SM City Iloilo went out of their usual work routine to extend assistance to the Brigada Eskwela project of the Department of Education.
This year, the Glicerio Pison Elementary School was the chosen school. Last May 19, the mall's employees cleaned the school premises, painted chairs and tables, fixed doorknobs as well as refurbished the handwashing area by placing new tiles and installing faucets.
The employee volunteerism program is one of the many efforts spearheaded by SM City Iloilo to stay involved in the community. It is the employees' way to exercise their social responsibility and to directly immerse themselves with the community SM serves.
The project is being done on top of the institutionalized community projects of the company that benefit children, senior citizens, farmers and PWDs as well as the environment among others, through SM Cares and SM Foundation Inc.
Earlier during the week, Molo II Elementary school was also extended assistance by the SM City Iloilo Foodhall and Foodcourt group. The mall’s agency maintenance and security personnel also played a big role in the activity.
