SM, through its OPTE program, gives relief support to Typhoon Ulysses victims

Just recently, our newsfeed has been flooded with devastating news about our fellow Filipinos in Cagayan province due to Typhoon Ulysses. Thus, different organizations and individuals did their part in reaching out to those affected people. Here's how SM Supermalls and SM Foundation acted in response to the needs of our kababayan.

SM Supermalls and SM Foundation, through its Operation Tulong Express (OPTE) program, provides immediate relief assistance to residents affected by Typhoon Ulysses in Cagayan and other affected areas.

SM Center Tuguegarao Downtown donated two truckloads of bottled water which were received by Tuguegarao City Mayor Jefferson Soriano and Vice Mayor Bienvenido De Guzman. The donations were brought to Cathedral Gym and East Central Elementary School which served as evacuation centers for flood-stricken residents. Hot meals were also distributed to some 300 residents.
