It is one of those hot and dry weekends where you just want to be indoor in an air-con room. Well, friends, indoor and air-con is what I can get from Monday to Friday in the office… weekends are meant to be spent outdoors sweating it out or pay visits to places like the Malaysian Red Crescent “Donate & Buy”.

Today is MRC soft opening of their “Donate & Buy” 2nd-hand shop located at MRC HQ, Jalan P. Ramlee (opposite RTM).

The MRC Sarawak Branch receives donations of used clothing, bags, shoes, household items, etc from its supporters, well-wishers and the general public. Most of these are in good condition and a few are new items which have not been used. The MRC Sarawak Branch recycles these items by selling them off at very attractive prices; starting from RM0.50. The 2nd Hand Shop not only supports the recycling movement, the MRC Sarawak Branch hopes to generate funds for running its various humanitarian and training activities.

The MRC appeals to the public for its generous support by donating items which are in reasonably good/working conditions to its shop. Items (used or new) such as clothes, kitchen & household utensils, electrical products, furniture, etc; are all welcomed.

For further information, please contact the MRC Sarawak Branch administrative office at tel: 082-240610/428228 (Jacqueline Lum).
