With the continuous support of its loyal shoppers, SM Store launched an initiative to help underprivileged students who have little to no capacity to procure basic school materials – such as notebooks. “Shop & Share to Bridge Access to Education” is a donation drive wherein customers can sponsor a kid’s school kit with any valid transaction including any item from the SM Stationery section starting August 1 to 31, 2023.
For only P99, a school kit containing seven (7) notebooks will be donated to the students of ten (10) public elementary schools across the country. In order to guarantee that the donated school kits will be utilized by students who need them most, SM Store is collaborating with SM Foundation for the proper identification of the school beneficiaries.
With sixty-nine (69) participating SM Stores nationwide, this initiative presents an extensive outlet for shoppers to donate and for SM to ensure that its coverage can benefit rural areas and underserved communities.
