In this joint project of The SM Store, SM Foundation and Stationery, booths were set up in all The SM Store branches nationwide where customers could donate pre-loved books for various public school areas.
Supplies Station also displayed brand new notebooks and art kits on the booths for customers who wanted to buy and donate these to the less fortunate.

Each donation entitled a customer with a Php 50 discount coupon which can be redeemed for every minimum Php 500 single-receipt purchase on regular-priced items from the Supplies Station at The SM Store. Coupons are valid until June 30, 2018.
Customer response was overwhelming as the Donate-A-Book campaign was able to gather a total of 75,660 books and 6,947 supplies from all The SM Store Branches nationwide. These books and supplies were in turn donated in around 58 public schools all over the country.
