4(1)Give the children of Marawi the gift of reading this year with The SM Store’s Donate-a-Book campaign.
It can be remembered that the five-month-long siege in Marawi affected thousands of children’s lives. Some schools were destroyed while children have no longer access to education and can’t afford basic learning materials like books and school supplies.

Reading is known as a powerful tool for healing – as it helps the mind to find its peaceful place.  This is because books are motivating, inspirational and give a vision of human strength. Help the children of Marawi overcome difficulties and dream again with the Gift of Reading.

In this joint project of The SM Store and SM Stationery, booths have been set up in all The SM Store branches nationwidee. Shoppers can now have the chance to donate new books, pre-loved books and brand new school supplies set from May 1, 2018 to June 30, 2018.

Each donation entitles a customer with a Php 50 discount coupon which can be redeemed for every minimum Php 500 single-receipt purchase on regular-priced items from the SM Stationery at The SM Store. Coupons are valid until May 1, 2019.


Donate-A-Book is one of the ways The SM Store and its customers work together to do their share for the less fortunate. The joy it brings the recipients is priceless as it can in the Alabang Elementary School and the Tanza Elementary School. And your donation will certainly bring smiles to the children of Marawi.


Other projects are Share Your Extras, Gamot Para Sa Kapwa and the upcoming Share-A-Toy campaign.



Together we can tackle this Global crisis

From poisoning and injuring marine life to disrupting the eco system, from littering our beaches and landscapes to clogging our waste streams and landfills, the exponential growth of plastics is now threatening the survival of our planet.

In response, Earth Day was held in SM City San Pablo last April 22nd  thru  SM Cares, in partnership with Earth Day Network Philippines and DENR. The event focused on fundamentally changing human attitude and behavior about plastics and catalyzing a significant reduction in plastic pollution.

Earth Day is one of the initiatives of SM Supermalls which encouraged shoppers to exchange their trash for cash knows as the Trash to Cash Campaign. This aims to educate and mobilize citizens across the country to control and diminish plastic pollution and be well informed and take personal responsibility for the plastic pollution that each one of us generates by choosing to reduce, refuse, reuse, recycle and remove plastics.

In sum, SM City San Pablo supporting the power of Earth Day campaign to elevate the issue of pollution in the global agenda and inspiring and demanding effective action in reducing and controlling the pollution involving from each and every one of us.earth day 2018
