ROSALES, Pangasinan – In response to creating a public elementary school that is organized and conducive for learning, SM City Rosales led by the Human Resources Department conducted the “Adopt-A-School” project.
The HR Department initiated a book drive, as highlight of the ‘Adopt-A-School’ project, where it encouraged employees to donate books – from story books to subject books.
The books collected for a month were given to over 150 students of Puelay Elementary School in Villasis who were also given school supplies.
SM City Rosales employees also did a clean-up drive in preparation for the start of the school year.
“This activity is conducted to acknowledge the importance of education to young ones,” SM Rosales Assistant Mall Manager Catherine Garcia expressed. Garcia also stressed that this program of SM is a symbol of love and care by the employees.
The “Adopt-A-School” project is part of SM’s Employee Volunteerism project with an objective in helping to improve the community. This is also to provide opportunity for employees to have a stronger ethic for citizen service.
Meanwhile, the security force of SM Rosales headed by Customer Related Services Department, joined the Brigada Eskwela 2016 by repairing classroom chairs at and donating trash bins to Carmen Elementary School.
