Many of those severely affected by the typhoon “Fabian” are still trying to rebuild their lives and with the declaration of new quarantine status, life is more challenging for people in ECQ areas.
To help fast-track recovery, SM Foundation, Inc. and SM Supermalls through Operation Tulong Express (OPTE) donated Kalinga Packs to LGUs of Balanga and Dinalupihan, Bataan and Olongapo City.
This activity was done jointly with SM City Olongapo Central, SM City Olongapo Downtown and SM City Bataan and the local government units.
Balanga City Mayor Francis Garcia expressed gratitude to SM for receiving 600 relief packs to be distributed to affected families. Dinalupihan Bataan, Barangays East Tapinac, Kalaklan and Pagasa were among the recipients of the relief packs.
To fulfill its “Supporting Communities” promise, SM Foundation serves communities through outreach initiatives like this, as well as provide customers nationwide with relevant and helpful services.
