KUCHING: Charity NGO Hope Place has opened its second Budget Shop, sponsored by corporate company Hock Seng Lee (HSL), at Eden Center, 12th Mile.

According to a statement on Monday (May 3), the shop would sell a variety of secondhand items.

“This shop also creates job opportunities. Any additional funds raised will be added to our emergency funds to be used to help fire and flood victims.

“Genuine fire or flood victims (police report as proof) can choose the items for free,” said Hope Place founder Kelvin Wan.

The shop accepts all kinds of donations ranging from fashion items to household items as long as they are not damaged, dirty or unusable.

“We are not a recycling centre and our volunteers would have to distribute all the donations to the needy. That is why we only sell items that others can use or wear.”

Wan added that the target customers are the B40 groups.

“Household appliances and small kitchen items are especially difficult to obtain at a cheap price. Same goes for items such as bed frames, wardrobes, and baby strollers. These items are sold quickly once put up for sale.

“Most of the items are priced at RM2 to RM10 and the shop is open everyday except Sundays, from 10am to 5pm.”
