The SM workforce across the nation simultaneously held “ChriSMiles,” a volunteerism activity that has become a yearly Christmas tradition, aiming to benefit kids in need. It encourages employees to find the deeper meaning of Christmas by sharing their blessings with the needy sectors of the society. For the past years, ChriSMiles has brought smiles to thousands of Filipinos nationwide.
Apart from the special gifts and games prepared by the employees, they were gathered at SM City Rosales’ Mall Atrium, to accept Bears of Joy collected for them.
