The SM Store, the largest Filipino mall chain, is conducting a book drive among its customers to donate reading materials for public school students.
The 2019 Grand Stevie Awardee’s SM Share Movement Donate a Book campaign is ongoing in all its branches nationwide until July 7.
The SM Store book drive campaign states it primarily aims to gather support and donations in order to revive the reading habit among students, especially in public elementary schools.
According to Joseph Rosal, Senior AVP for Operations of The SM Store, “More shoppers are looking for ways to give back and The SM Store share this mission. We want to become the venue for people to come together and foster the true Filipino spirit of sharing or bayanihan.”
The donations gathered from the campaign will benefit select SM Foundation-supported schools such as Balanga Elementary School in Bataan.
In a video posted on The SM Store’s Official Facebook page, SM Store Volunteer Paula Tuazon explains that the #SMShareMovement is one way that SM and its customers team up to help the less fortunate children and those studying in public schools.
Since 2015, over 230,000 books and school supplies were collected from donations from all of the SM Store branches nationwide.
In return for every book donated, old or new, a Php 50 coupon will be given by The SM Store. The coupon can be used with a minimum Php 500 single-receipt purchase of regular-priced items from SM Stationery. School supplies are also accepted as donations.
