It was a day full of love as SM City Iloilo employees reached out to the children from Home for Girls, a center operated by DSWD to provide care for kids who are victims of either violence or sexual abuse, and from the Children’s Joy Foundation, Inc., a center catering to indigent kids for their basic needs.

The kids were treated to mall rides, games and prizes, Jollibee snacks and entertainment from the lovable Jollibee mascot. SM Bears of joy were also distributed to each child which brought BIG SMILES to almost all the kids. As their way of giving thanks to the SM employees, the kids also prepared entertainment in the form of songs and dances and to also showcase their talents.
PR Manager, Troy Camarista gave his welcome message while HR Manager, Irene Caumban concluded the activity encouraging everyone to give BIG HUGS to the kids.
It was indeed a day full of joys and love, a meaningful way to celebrate the Christmas season right inside the workplace.
The activity is part of the Employee Volunteerism Program of the mall, and the special part of it is that, the resources for the activity were raised by the employees themselves. Each employee took extra time and effort to take part of the activity just to offer happiness to the children in their own little ways.
The activity is on top of the many social projects of the mall spearheaded by SM Foundation.
