Caritas Manila goes online for donations

account_balanceMetro Manila chat_bubble_outline0 Comments visibility

Caritas Manila, the social action arm of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Manila (RCAM), has partnered with an online platform to ask for donations from both buyers and sellers.

Caritas Manila Inc. and online community store “Goodwear” signed an agreement wherein sellers from the community store may choose to donate their unsold items from the store.

“Sellers and buyers from the community store also have an option to provide cash donations to Caritas Manila,” Caritas Manila said in a statement Saturday.

It noted that the cooperation between the Church and the private sector aims to help indigents.

“This partnership aims to further help the less fortunate to be given more scholarships through Caritas Manila’s Youth Servant Leadership and Education Program or YSLEP, with the help from Goodwear online store’s generosity,” the statement said.

“Good Wear shares an advocacy with Caritas Manila and believes that ‘good, mindful style isn’t expensive if it’s shared,’ and it is setting itself as an example of its belief through helping share their products for those in need through the option of donating,” the Caritas Manila added.

On the other hand, the company would like to dispel notions that donations or second-items are less worthy than new ones.

“Goodwear also aims to break the barriers of a common belief that pre-loved items are less prestigious from brand new products, and focuses on the trend of sustainability through these pre-loved items,” it said.

YSLEP is an integrated academic and leadership development program designed to provide an environment for scholastic excellence reinforced with leadership and values formation to empower and give its beneficiaries not just financial assistance for education but reinforce it with Christian values.

It prioritizes urban poor youth, menial youth workers, children in conflict with the law, children of fishermen and farmers, differently-abled youth, orphans, young indigenous people, children and youth who are survivors of war and disasters and human trafficking, children of prisoners, street children and high school and college dropouts.

For inquiries and donations to YSLEP, kindly contact Caritas Manila’s hotline at 563-9311, 564-0205, 354-1050, 254-5519, 0905-4285001, 0929-8343857, and 0917-5955083. You may also visit their website at https://caritasmanila.org.ph/caritas-manila-events/ or email them at info@caritasmanila.org.ph
