Ray’s Second-Hand Shop offers clothes, electrical appliances, stationary, furniture, home furnishings, toys and toiletries donated to the Father Ray Foundation to be sold to raise funds for the Redemptorist school.

The students benefitted from hands-on experience managing business inventories and point-of-sale systems, helped the school bring order to the chaos. They categorized products into groups, tagged items and helped prepare the store for the public.
