As part of its celebration of the National Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Week, Metro Retail Stores Group Inc. (MRSGI), will be mounting the “Metro Community Bazaar” featuring its various CSR partners in making a positive difference in communities where they operate. This project is done in cooperation with Vicsal Foundation, Inc., the non-stock, non-profit private domestic corporation that champions the CSR initiatives of the Vicsal Group of Companies, which incorporates MRSGI.
The Metro Community Bazaar will be held on July 1 to 8, 2019 at Metro Supermarket in Market! Market! Taguig; and on July 1 to 31, 2019 at Metro Supermarket Alabang, Muntinlupa; and Mandaue, Cebu. CSR Partner exhibitors include Bureau of Jail Management and Penology, Caritas Margins, Caritas Segunda Mana, Coca-Cola Philippines, GreenEarth Foundation, Inc., Habitat for Humanity Philippines, Philippine Red Cross, and St. Arnold Janssen Kalinga Center.
MRSGI has been supporting these organizations and programs to be able to reach out and help uplift individuals and communities in need – a value that is ingrained in MRSGI’s corporate culture, taken to heart by its top management and employees.
According to MRSGI Chairman and CEO, Frank Gaisano, “There are plenty of opportunities for us to provide service and extend a helping hand to underprivileged Filipinos. Beyond merely sharing our blessings, we see this as our responsibility as an institution and as a member of the society. Through the Metro Community Bazaar, we are helping our partners become more accessible to the public and we are also making it easy for our shoppers to help out.”
Everyone is invited to visit the Metro Community Bazaar where they can find great discoveries such as delicious eats, farmers’ produce, healthy drinks, fashion pieces, trendy trinkets and accessories, home ware and decor, and religious items. Every purchase is a show of support for the causes and communities that the exhibitors advocate. Shoppers will also get to know the latest CSR activities and projects of MRSGI’s partners.
