A post on social media about a Las Piñas store went viral recently mainly because customers can acquire everything being offered by the store for free.
According to free-store volunteer, Lovely Sotto, groceries can be picked up at the store without paying a single centavo.
The free store offers various goods including coffee, canned goods, rice, instant noodles, and many more.
In a Facebook post, Sotto showed photos of residents in a location in Las Piñas shopping for grocery items that they need not pay for.
The volunteer captioned her post with: “Get everything here for free! Walang babayaran kahit piso.”
Sotto said that there were several customers who were in a hurry to pick up grocery items so others can also take their turn in shopping for free items.
She said that the free store project is a brainchild of the religious organization, Members Church of God International (MCGI).
According to the MCGI website, it is also the owner of Ang Dating Daan, which was led by the late evangelist, Brother Eli Soriano.
In the beginning, it was open only for church members, though later on, even non-members can shop at the store.

Vlogger Denso Tambyahero took it upon himself to help a senior citizen husband and wife who lived in a shanty. The vlogger said the couple rarely gets financial or food assistance inspite of their pitiful condition. They said they can only eat if their kids give them some money. Because of this, Denso gave them a sack of rice and some other assistance.
In Manila, the TikTok video of some residents who received an unexpected food and financial assistance has gone viral. Netizens were amused and happy at the reaction of the recipients upon hearing their name being called to receive the assistance. Some netizens commented that residents who received the assistance looked like they won as representatives of the Philippines in an international beauty pageant.
