Caritas Manila receives more donations during holiday season

MANILA, Dec. 17 (PNA) -- An official of the social services arm of the Catholic Church on Saturday said they usually get more donations in kind during the holiday season.

Fr. Anton Pascual, Executive Director of Caritas Manila, said the reason why they get donations during December is because many donors are cleaning up their houses, stockrooms of things that they no longer need.

"Maraming naglilinis ng kanilang bahay. Maraming nag-aayos ng kanilang bodega kaya maganda mag-donate sa Segunda Mana this time para matulungan sila ma-declog ang kanilang bodega at mga bahay and it is the season of giving," he said.

With this, Pascual reminded donors to give out items that are still valuable so that those who would receive the donations would be able to use them.

"Mahalaga din 'yung quality ng binibigay. 'Yung meron pang value hindi 'yung hindi na magagamit. Dapat ang binibigay natin meron pa value, meron pa makikinabang sa binibigay may it be appliance, apparel, or equipment sana meron pa siya value," he added.

But, the Catholic priest noted that even if the gifts are second hand, it's still a gift.

"A gift is a gift. Even second hand gift is valuable. Its the thought that counts and the quality of the relationship between the giver and the receiver that matters," he said.

Segunda Mana is the donations-in-kind program of Caritas Manila which accepts pre-loved items such as: clothes, shoes, bags, toys, home and fashion accessories as GIFTS for CHARITY.

Through Caritas Manila’s Segunda Mana, it advocates the 3Rs: reuse, reduce and recycle.

It also supports over 5,000 poor but deserving youth scholars under the flagship program of Caritas Manila, the Youth Servant Leadership and Education Program (YSLEP).
