We’ve gotten a lot of messages from people asking if they can volunteer for NVC, we love your enthusiasm and your spirit of service! Unfortunately, Covid restrictions have forced us to limit our volunteer opportunities for the time being. However, there is still a way you can help us out from the safety of your own homes!
Many of you probably start your day with a cup of joe. Your daily coffee habit can play a big role in helping the people we serve. A number of the crafts made by the NVC Artisans of Hope are made using upcycled aluminum coffee capsules. Proceeds from the sales of these crafts fund our different livelihood, nutrition and education programs. We need as many of these coffee capsules as we can get so drink up and keep them coming our way!
We accept all brands of metal coffee capsules. At the moment we do not accept any plastic coffee capsules. For your convenience, we have drop off points in the following locations:
9 Hidalgo San Lorenzo Village
Fiesta Greetings Bldg. 160 Alfonso XIII, San Juan
(Attn: Mariel Tolentino)
Unit E124, Tower E-1 Alexandra Condominium
(Attn: Adele Olives)
Ines Moda Infantil
2A Kensington Place 1st Avenue, BGC
Bacolod and Cebu
54 Lizares Avenue, Bacolod City
Doll Building 6th Street, Bacolod City
Island Grill, 4th Floor Ayala Center Cebu
You may also drop off your Nespresso capsules at official stores. They will turn the capsules over to us.
You don’t have to clean the capsules or pods before you donate them but if you could do that, we’d appreciate the extra help! Click on the links to see how some of our volunteers have been cleaning the coffee capsules before donating them.
Here are some beautiful crafts the NVC Artisans have created with upcycled coffee capsules:
