SMC donates P23-m relief goods to Taal

San Miguel Corp. continues to mobilize resources from across the conglomerate to provide much-needed assistance to both communities impacted by Taal volcano’s recent eruption, and to various government and private groups spearheading relief efforts.  

The company has to date provided over P23 million in relief goods and donations, which include food items such as rice, canned goods, coffee, biscuits, milk, and eggs, among others. Food unit San Miguel Foods accounts for the bulk of food donations. It also immediately provided food, face masks, blankets, sleeping mats, and clothing to thousands of victims in evacuation areas and in affected communities when the volcano erupted January 12.

SMC’s own employee donation drive also yielded various quantities of other necessities, such as clothes, toiletries, sanitary napkins, footwear, detergent, powder and sanitizing alcohol.

“Our businesses are diverse, and over the past week, that has allowed us to help many people in so many different ways. We also have a lot of civic-minded employees who have given their time and resources to our own relief efforts,” said SMC president Ramon Ang.
