SM City General Santos conducts Brigada Eskwela 2016
Recognizing the importance of education and the spirit of volunteerism, SM Supermalls has embarked on an Adopt-A-School program that is aimed at rehabilitating and improving school facilities of the different public elementary schools nationwide.
Just recently, SM Supermalls simultaneously conducted Brigada Eskwela to their chosen schools in their respective communities. This is part of their Employees Volunteerism Program (EVP), wherein employees pool their funds together as a way of giving back to the community.
In General Santos City, SMGS employees chose Balite Elementary School in Barangay Lagao to be this year's beneficiary of the said program. More than twenty (20) employees volunteered to do the school's makeover: from cleaning the classrooms to re-painting the classroom walls. Cleaning materials and health kits were also donated thereto.
“I am privileged to have been given a chance to go back here and serve my Alma Mater. I am also proud that I am an employee of SM that shows more concern to the community through this kind of activity,” shares Engr. Rose Fatima Manlangit, a BES Batch 1999 alumna who is currently employed at SM General Santos as Building Administration Officer .
Ms. Jonalyn M. Lim, the principal of Balite Elementary School was very grateful to SM that they were chosen to be this year’s Adopt-a-School recipient of SM City General Santos.
