Caritas Manila's SEGUNDA MANA in Marikina City

Friday, March 07, 2014

Have you heard of Caritas Manila? Yes, it's the official Church of the Poor. They have just opened shops around the country to do just one thing, do charity. They are achieving this through their pet project SEGUNDA MANA - a charity store where anybody could donate 1) Used and pre loved items that may benefit others, 2) Slow and non moving inventories and 3) Goods that consume space in your closets, cabinets and garages. 

As a matter of fact, they just opened a new one in Marikina Riverbanks Mall which aims to support Caritas Manila's Youth Servant Leadership and Education Program. This is their 13th store!

There's over a hundred companies that are regularly donating for their cause and they have over a thousand less fortunate kids as their scholars now, there will be more soon. The help that they have been getting from individuals is tremendous. Even this branch was given free by the mall owners as a way to give back to the community. It was attended by Vice Mayor Dr. Jose Fabian I. Cadiz, Riverbanks Center's Owners Meneleo Carlos Jr and his daughter Rosario, plus the Caritas Manila board of trustees Rosario Villar and Francisco Hugo . From the diocese of Antipolo there's Father Mabini Caldo and Father Bienvenido Miguel who also officiated the store's blessing. 

The SEGUNDA MANA Charity Store also has branches in Caritas Manila head office in Pandacan, Makati Square, San Roque Cathedral, Harrison Plaza, Sta. Lucia Mall, Farmers Plaza, Isetann Cinerama Complex in Recto, Victory Central Mall in Caloocan, Starmall Edsa Shaw and Alabang, Victory Shopping Center in Alabang and Victory Pasay Mall in Pasay City. There's a thousand ways for you to help our less priviliged kababayans and just by donating or shopping in this establishment, you can do just that!
