About

Uhuru Furniture is bringing a team of volunteers to be at all of the exciting outdoor festivals and flea markets this summer!

The Uhuru Health Festival & Flea Market on April 23rd will be the first outdoor Uhuru event of the year! After the Health Festival, there will be more Uhuru Flea Markets held on May 21st, June 18th, August 20th, September 24th, and October 22nd of 2016.

It's socializing for social justice! Enjoy the outdoors and festival atmosphere while promoting Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles' furniture donation pick-up service, and shopping in support of the African People's Education and Defense Fund (APEDF.org), supporting sustainable economic development in the hands of the African community.

With a fun, enthusiastic group, hand out Uhuru Furniture business cards and flyers in the crowd. Then stay and enjoy the event. This is a great volunteer activity to bring your friends to and meet new people!

We'll be out with our team most Saturdays from 11am-2pm, plus at other events occurring at various times.
