To celebrate Grandparents Day, SM City Iloilo employees went out of their usual work routines and had an early morning bonding with the members of the Federation of Senior Citizen Affairs of the Philippines (FSCAP)-Iloilo Chapter. This was last September 4, 2018 at Felicidad Sy Wellness Center, Molo, Iloilo City, which is also FSCAP’s office.
This activity is part of SM’s Employee Volunteerism Program, which encourages employees to be more involved in the community.
Along with the games, songs and dances, SM City Iloilo brought joy to the elderly by conveying the good news that the mall will re-paint their center for it to have a new look and be more conducive for their activities.
Recently, the Employee Volunteerism Program was also held in the same center wherein employees, through their personal generosity, augmented the budget necessary for the completion of the installation of a steel fence on the terrace area of the FSCAP office. With the steel fence in place, the area is now safer for the elderlies.
SM City Iloilo, through the SM Cares Committee for Senior Citizens Affairs, remains to be supportive of the welfare of the elderly sector. Along with other SM malls nationwide, it also continues to provide senior citizens with jobs that are commensurate to their capabilities, such as mall greeters at SM Foodcourt, cinema and mall entrances.
