FOR the past years, SM’s ChriSMiles has brought a genuinely sweet smiles to underprivileged kids.
It is an annual “Share Your Blessings” activity of SM employees that helps extend the joy of Christmas and touch the lives of those in need.
“I know waking up very early in the morning is not in your system, but for the sake of giving joy to these kids, you came,” mall manager Mark Herrera said in his speech.
“ChriSMiles is just one of the programs of SM Cares, a simple way of giving back to the community,” he added.
This year, the mall has chosen Barangay Gordon Heights as beneficiary.
The children were welcomed in the mall where they received gift packs and enjoyed the parlor games and dance number prepared for them by volunteer employees. These children also showed their talents in dancing and singing in return.
“Sa ngalan po ng Barangay Gordon Heights kami po’y nagpapasalamat sa SM dahil ang mga bata ng barangay ang inyong napili para sa activity na ito, (In the name of Barangay Gordon Heights we thank SM for choosing the children in our barangay to have this activity),” expressed Nancy Bolo, purok leader.
“ChriSMiles”, is a nationwide employees’ volunteerism activity of SM Supermalls that aims to bring smiles to chosen beneficiaries. The program also encourages all SM employees to be more appreciative of their blessings by sharing these with the underprivileged sectors of society.
Over 3,000 employees of SM Supermalls brought cheers through various charitable activities throughout the Christmas season. (PR)
