Caritas Manila opened its new Segunda Mana Charity Store at Platform Northbound, Greenfield District Station, Mandaluyong City on November 15, 2014 at 10:00AM.
Rev. Fr. Anton CT Pascual, Executive Director of Caritas Manila, graced the blessing and ribbon-cutting of the newest branch.
This is the 16th branch of Segunda Mana. Other stores are located at Caritas Manila Head Office, Makati Cinema Square, Isetann Cinerama Complex, Harrison Plaza, StarMall-Edsa, StarMall-Alabang, Victory Central Mall, Victory Shopping Center, Victory Pasay Mall, Farmer’s Plaza, Sta. Lucia Mall, Riverbank Center-Marikina, Metropoint Mall Edsa-Taft Rotonda, San Roque Cathedral and Victory Mall, Lacson Underpass, Quiapo Manila.
Segunda Mana, also known as Caritas In-Kind, is the donations in-kind program of Caritas Manila. Segunda Mana accepts the following items: old items that can still be use, used items that still have value, new items, and old stocks and non-moving inventories.
Pre-loved items such as clothes, shoes, bags, toys, home and fashion accessories are donated by generous companies, organizations and individuals which are offered at friendly prices in Segunda Mana stalls.
My wife has no plans of buying but when she saw items that worth acquiring, she bought with her bag and shoes who are still new with box and label.
Have bought also Original VCDs that is P 20.00 per piece.
Proceeds from the sale of the items will go to the pro-poor programs of Caritas Manila particularly to support the scholarship of the Youth Servant Leadership and Education Program (YSLEP).
As Rev. Fr. Anton Pascual puts it, “Buying is the new way of giving.”
Caritas Manila will also hold its 2nd Buy and Give Expo on November 28, 29 and 30 at the Glorietta Activity Center, Palm Drive, Makati City – a bigger venue for showcasing their products. We will drop by to check some gift items we can share for our loved ones.
