IN support of DepEd’s annual brigada eskwela, employees of SM Malls in Batangas joined hands in assisting the clean-up and preparation of some public schools in Batangas.
Just like the previous years, volunteers from each mall shared their free time and effort to ensure the preparedness of their partner schools for the opening of classes.
Employees of SM City Batangas assisted Melecio Arceo Memorial Elementary School in Batangas City in cleaning the school garden, repainting of chairs and repair of broken classroom windows. SM Center Lemery on the other hand, extended support to Esteban E. Vito Memorial Elementary School in Lemery where the employee volunteers cleaned the classrooms and repainted the desks and classroom walls.
While the employees of SM City Lipa went to Lumbang Elementary School in Lipa City where they repainted the Grade 2 classroom, chairs, bulletin boards and installed curtains and canvas or “lona” to protect front doors and windows from heavy rainfall downpour.
Joining the Brigada Eskwela is part of SM’s employee volunteerism project spearheaded by HR Department under the SM Cares program which aims to extend assistance to various sectors in the community they serve.|
