Sun.Star Pampanga - - TOPSTORIES! -

SM City Mar­i­lao sent its vol­un­teers to flooded ar­eas in Mar­i­lao, to pro­vide im­me­di­ate re­lief to thou­sands of fam­i­lies af­fected by Trop­i­cal De­pres­sion Mar­ing.

The trop­i­cal de­pres­sion flooded large swathes and turned some ar­eas in Mar­i­lao into in­land seas.

Through SM Foun­da­tion Inc.’s Op­er­a­tion Tu­long Ex­press pro­gram, around 1,500 fam­i­lies were given re­lief packs or “Kalinga” packs.

These “kalinga” packs con­tain a kilo of rice, canned sar­dines, and in­stant noo­dles as well as bot­tled wa­ter all packed up in an eco-bag.

Op­er­a­tion Tu­long Ex­press (OPTE) is SM Foun­da­tion’s emer­gency re­sponse to vic­tims of nat­u­ral calami­ties and dis­as­ters.

Its im­ple­men­ta­tion in­cludes close co­or­di­na­tion with Save­more and Hyper­mar­ket, Mall Administration em­ploy­ees and vol­un­teers that in­clude the mall’s Cus­tomer Re­la­tions Ser­vice team as well as lo­cal gov­ern­ment units. (Press Re­lease)
