Metro Manila (CNN Philippines)— Retail giant SM Supermalls extended relief assistance to communities affected by the eruption of Taal Volcano.

Along with its corporate social responsibility affiliates SM Foundation, Inc., and SM Cares, and in partnership with the Philippine Red Cross, SM Supermalls established the Oplan Tulong Express booths in its South Luzon malls: Bacoor, Dasmarinas, Molino, Rosario, Trece Martires, Imus, Sta. Rosa, San Pablo, Calamba, Batangas, Lipa, and Lucena.

The Oplan Tulong Express booth is where everyone can drop off their donations such as clean drinking water, food, medicines, and essentials like mats, blankets, pillows, water containers, and utensils.

The SM Foundation, Inc. is in charge of distributing "kalinga" relief packs or care packs to affected barangays in Lipa, Lemery, Sto. Tomas, and Batangas City.

So far, over 2,000 kalinga relief packs were already delivered to evacuation centers and sorting sites in Bauan, Tanauan, and Sto. Tomas in Batangas province.

Meanwhile, over 2,500 bottles of 6.6 liters of distilled water were also delivered to some barangays in Lipa and to the Batangas City Coliseum.
