"SM is a part of many communities from north to south. At a time like this, we continue to serve," SM Supermalls President Steven Tan said.
SM has implemented a skeletal workforce among its security guards, janitors, cashiers, stock clerks, and engineers, and provides them with shuttle services to work. Tan also assured that the company continues to provide the salaries of all its employees and has given financial assistance to those working in outsourced services.
To ensure safety and cleanliness, SM requires its mall goers to wear face masks, disinfect, and undergo temperature checks at all mall entrances. Social distancing is also practiced by both staff and customers in supermarkets, drugstores, and banks located within.
Moreover, SM donated P170 million-worth of medical supplies, ventilators, test kits, and equipment to over 50 hospitals nationwide. An additional P100 million was also coursed through Project Ugnayan, a consortium of over 30 businesses managed by the Philippine Disaster Resilience Foundation (PDRF).
"At this time, SM is here to serve, help, and support Filipino communities who are in need. We are thankful and salute all those who are working with us during this time of crisis," Tan said.
