I very recently received email invites from Ms. Justine Mae Acharon, Public Relations Officer of SM City General Santos to two separate events unfolding this week.

The invites are for the turnover of SM Foundation, Inc. of two classroom buildings in Barangays Tambler and San Isidro.

The first school building will be turned over at 10:00 am tomorrow, February 21, 2012 to BANISIL NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL, Tambler.  This is a joint project of SM Foundation, Inc with SM Prime Holdings Inc. and Banco de Oro Foundation.

In the afternoon, of the following day, Wednesday, February 22, 2012 at 2:00pm, it will be the turn of the Gen. Santos City SPED Integrated School to receive a new school building.  This time, it will be SM Foundation, Inc.’s solo project.

The Honorable City Mayor Darlene Antonino Custodio will be on hand to witness and sign the Deeds of Acceptance for the two new school buildings from SM Foundation, Inc.  along with DepEd officials of the city.

SMFI will also be donating books to the two school beneficiaries.

According to Ms. Acharon, this is just the first in a series of Corporate Social Responsibility programs to be unleashed by SM Foundation Inc. and her partners on the city.  Once the doors of their biggest mall in Mindanao, the SM CITY General Santos are finally opened next quarter, we should expect more of the same.
