Red Acacia's Widow Program


Red Acacia's Widow Program is made possible by material donations of unused but useful home artifacts from well-meaning individuals or organizations. We donate 80% of all profits from the sales of these items to the Widow Program.

We work on a personal level with chosen widow(s), and assist them with a high priority need ranging from business assistance, house rent, School Fees for their children, health fees, or other stated need.

The frequency of our work with widows is determined by how much we have generated in the Widow Program. To participate in this program, you don't need to donate cash. You only need to donate home items that you no longer use to our "Again" section. All Again donations/resells must be in good resalable condition. The Store accepts anything from one-of-a-kind treasures to ordinary household items, including small appliances, furniture, bric-a-brac, etc. Donated items are accepted Monday through Saturday, 10.00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Alternatively, if you're based in Lagos, we can collect the items from your location.

Store hours are Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m. Red Acacia’s Again & Bargain Store is located at 2A Oseni Street in Anthony, Lagos. For more information, contact June on +234 8034021794.

For Lagos residents, donating couldn’t be easier – call Red Acacia’s Again & Bargain Store on 08034021794, and we will arrange to come and collect items from your location. Why Widows? Widowhood is a deeply stressful occurrence, particularly in Nigeria where some cultural widowhood practices are generally traumatic. In addition, most widows suddenly find themselves in need of economic, service, social, and/or emotional support. The Red Acacia Widow Program assists from an economic perspective. "Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." ..James 1:27
