CITY OF SAN JOSE DEL MONTE, Bulacan — Senior citizens in this city celebrated their first gathering for the year last February 19 at SM City San Jose del Monte.
More than 600 members of the city’s senior citizens community came to the event dubbed as “Senior’s Day at the Mall” highlighted by a dance competition. Eight groups of senior dancers with at least five members each participated in the contest and performed dance hits of both from today’s and yesterday’s music.
Aside from providing services for leisure and comfort, like the previous years, SM design programs that encourage the elderly to be more active, more social, and engage more through activities that promote a healthy lifestyle and provide pieces of training from information technology to livelihood.
Senior’s Day at the Mall is just one of the elderly programs of SM Cares, a division of SM Foundation, the corporate social responsibility arm of SM Group of Companies, to show appreciation to senior citizens in every community where every SM Mall operates.
Moreover, SM City San Jose del Monte commits itself to continuously recognize our senior citizens not only to engage in health and wellness activities but also to give them opportunities that would make them rediscover their self-worth as a productive citizen in the community. SM Malls nationwide gives employment to senior citizens 60 to 70 years of age to work on a four-hour shift on weekends as greeters and ushers at the mall entrances.
