With the idea to give the homeless the same dignity and option as customers, The Street Store doesn’t just help to clothe the homeless, but also empower them by giving the retail experience of looking around and choosing their own clothes. Customers in need are welcome to choose an outfit for themselves from the hundreds of donated items, giving the gift of self-assured style along with needed clothing.
We want to thank the Manila Cathedral for helping us distribute admission stubs and the Intramuros Administration for allowing us to host a Street Store in the area.
