SM Development Corporation (SMDC) employees took a meaningful break from work as they supported SM Foundation’s blood drive.
More than 70 employees of SMDC signed up last September 14 for the activity done in partnership with the Department of Health’s Philippine Blood Center (DOH-PBC). By the end of the day, a total of 18,000 mL was collected and immediately stored in the SM employee blood bank.
