Coming home has never been this sweet as SM Global Pinoy honored OFWs who came home to spend Christmas together with their families and loved ones. This event is SM Supermalls’ way of saying ‘thank you’ to OFWs for their hard work and support, not only for their families, but also to the SM Global Pinoy Program.
Now on its 4th year. the SM Global Pinoy Program through Pamaskong Handog Para sa Global Pinoy held a grand homecoming last December 19th with 165 participants gathered in SM City San Pablo Mall Atrium. This year’s theme is all about celebrating the things OFW’s missed the most and that includes Pinoy Teleseryes and favorite home style Filipino cuisines. Here in SM City San Pablo they featured SM little stars Johan Jozef Yalong and Krystal Brimner and Kidzmatic. San Pablo idol Jerwin Pineda also serenaded the crowd.

Rosa, Xian Lim at SM City Cabanatuan and SM City Marilao, JayR at SM City Dasmariñas and SM City Bacoor, and ABS-CBN teen stars Loisa Andalio, Marlo Mortel and Joshua Garcia at SM City Bicutan.

SM prepared a special video showcasing greetings from OFWs around the world, spreading their love and gratitude for their families were also shown during the program.
“The holidays are all about bringing families together. We understand how much this means to our dear OFWs. They deserve nothing less for all the hard work they put in just to provide a good living for their families and to help our economy. This is our way of thanking them and making them feel the love and joy of spending Christmas back here in the Philippines,” says Jonjon San Agustin, SM Supermalls’ senior vice president for marketing.
