account_balanceMetro News account_circleMJ Blancaflor chat_bubble_outline0 Comments

New Year's is just around the corner, and you know what that means. It's time to declutter that chaotic closet of yours and make room for new adventures and fabulous experiences. As they say: Out with the old, in with the new!

But hey, before you bid farewell to your pre-loved clothes, hold up. You may consider giving them a second chance to bring joy to someone else's life instead of letting them pile up in landfills.

Here are some awesome groups right here in Metro Manila that happily accept clothing donations:

1. Segunda Mana
Location: 2002 Jesus St., Pandacan, Manila
Website: www.caritasmanila.org.ph/segunda-mana
Facebook: Segunda Mana

Topping our list is Segunda Mana, run by the kind folks at Caritas Manila. They collect all sorts of in-kind donations, including clothes, which they sell to raise funds for scholars, micro-entrepreneurs, and families. Donating is easy-peasy: you can drop your items off at their Pandacan office or simply have them pick them up from your place.

If you're looking to shop for pre-loved gems, check out one of their 54 outlets nationwide. The most popular stores are Caritas Manila in Pandacan, Ayala Fairview Terraces, New Farmers Plaza, Ayala Mall Marikina, Starmall EDSA, and Riverbanks Mall in Marikina. There are also stores at Sta. Lucia Mall in Cainta, Greenfield MRT in Mandaluyong, and Isetann Recto in Manila.

2. Philippine Red Cross
Location: Lourdes 1, 661 Boni Avenue, Mandaluyong City
Website: www.redcross.org.ph
Facebook: Philippine Red Cross

We all know the Philippine Red Cross for their life-saving blood drives, but did you know they also take clothing donations? Yep! Your pre-loved treasures can find their way to those in need, especially those hit by disasters and calamities. 

3. Goodwill Industries of the Philippines, Inc. 
Location: 22 Veterans Road, Taguig
Website: www.goodwillph.org
Facebook: Goodwill Philippines

Goodwill is here to prove that doing good never goes out of style. This non-profit organization is all about helping persons with disabilities and the disadvantaged get back on their feet. They accept in-kind donations, which are sold in Goodwill's thrift shops. Funds, in turn, finance training and placement programs for beneficiaries. It's a win-win for everyone!

4. Precious Heritage Children’s Homes
Location: 1340 Manuel Hizon St., Sta. Cruz, Manila
Website: www.preciousheritagechildren.org

This charitable organization, founded in 2008, has a big heart for the less fortunate. They gladly accept new and used clothes, shoes, toys, and home equipment — pretty much anything that can bring smiles to underprivileged orphans and street children. The organization also helps those affected by calamities. Spread the love!

5. Abot PH
Location: Quezon City
Facebook: Abot PH

This non-profit organization collects in-kind donations like clothes, books, toys, and anything else that can make a difference in the lives of less fortunate Filipinos, especially those in far-flung IP communities. Aye, aye. Remember that kindness knows no boundaries.

6. Wear Forward
Location: Pioneer Woodlands Tower 4, Pioneer St, corner Epifanio de los Santos Ave, Mandaluyong
Website: www.wearforward.com
Facebook: Wear Forward

Wear Forward is a fashion tech start-up that champions circular fashion. You can donate your pre-loved clothes, accessories, and offcut fabrics to this start-up, which they will upcycle. It's a win for fashion and for Mother Earth.


7. UNIQLO
Location: All UNIQLO stores nationwide
Website: www.uniqlo.com
Facebook: Uniqlo Philippines

You don't even need to go out of your way to donate your clothes. If there's a UNIQLO store nearby (and let's be honest, there's probably one just around the corner), you're in luck. They accept clothing donations as part of their sustainability initiatives. And it doesn't have to be UNIQLO fit. So while you're shopping for new threads, you can make a difference too. How cool is that?
