Caritas Manila celebrates 15 years of Segunda Mana

TO mark the 15th year anniversary of its Segunda Mana donated goods program, Caritas Manila has lined up plans to open more Segunda Mana outlets nationwide as well as bring back its celebrity-backed events.

The year 2022 saw gross sales of P77 million signaling a comeback from a pre-pandemic high of P70 million.

To better offer affordable pre-loved items to a greater number of people, Segunda Mana for 2023 is set to open an outlet in Cebu City and more kiosks such as the Catholic Women’s League Parañaque and Archdiocese of Manila.

There are also plans to open a 500-sqm outlet in Tondo, Manila and a future outlet in Davao City.

Two celebrity bazaars are also set to launch this year.

To date, there are 43 Segunda Mana outlets nationwide.

It was in 2008 when the then newly appointed executive director Fr. Anton C.T. Pascual was thinking of how to rebrand the name of what was internally known as the Materials Donations Program.

“Buying is the New Way of Giving” became the campaign slogan of Segunda Mana.

The aim is to encourage the public to donate pre-loved items

Furniture and appliances, kitchen and dining accessories, clothes, bags and luggage, school items, toys and books.

Caritas Manila can pick up items from its donors for free.

This vehicle will be used to pick-up cash or in-kind donations which will support our programs to help the poor help themselves.

May you continue to be the channel of God’s love to the least, the lost and the last.

The one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. – 2 Corinthians 9:6
