As a year-end treat this 2019, SM Malls in Baliwag and Pulilan painted smile across the faces of at least 105 children from Bethlehem House of Bread, one of the oldest orphanage in the province situated in Baliuag, Bulacan.
Dubbed as “ChriSMiles” volunteers from SM City Baliwag and SM Center Pulilan chose to spend some quality time with less fortunate children, by sharing with them little gifts and fun entertainment.
‘Each year, we always look forward in finding means to celebrate “ChriSMiles” one of the projects in SM that let us pay forward all the blessings that we receive all thought the year. This time, we are extending cheers to the ones who matter most, the children of Bethlehem House of Bread,” says SM City Baliwag Mall Manager Rodora Tolentino.
Children of Bethlehem House of Bread had a meaningful holiday as they received toys, school supplies, food, footwear, cleaning materials and ‘SM Bears of Joy’ from SM City Baliwag and SM Center Pulilan.
Employees also had their share of priceless moments with kids as they accompany them to a breakfast treat and served as their playmates for a day in various parlor games.
ChriSMiles is a yearly volunteerism activity of SM Supermalls that aims to make more children smile especially this holiday season. The event is a nationwide employee volunteerism program that brings joy to the chosen beneficiaries of each mall. The initiative started in 2012 that also encourages all SM employees to be more appreciative of their individual blessings by sharing and caring.
