SM Foundation distributes 24,000 Kalinga packs—each containing 5kg of rice and food essentials—to jeepney, tricycle and UV Express drivers across the country due to route disruptions caused by COVID-19.

This effort forms part of Operation Tulong Express (OPTE), a social good program of SM Foundation in collaboration with SM Supermalls and SM Markets to address the needs of communities during calamities and crisis.
