Can you see yourself enjoying your music while you volunteer and get to know Philly? Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles (UFC) - Philadelphia is looking for volunteers to take on a weekly postering route.

You would be postering/door hanging/flyering/or leafleting on designated routes to promote UFC's top quality, low priced, gently used furniture and free furniture donation pick-ups which support sustainable economic development projects by and for the black community. Hang posters in store windows and on bulletin boards in all kinds of businesses.

We have route lists and posters, you just show up ready to walk! We'll match you with a partner a few times, and then if it is a good fit you can do it on your own. It might be the most flexible volunteer job ever!

Feel good about making a difference - your work gets results! We get several furniture donations every week just from hanging these posters.

Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles - Philadelphia is located at 832 N. Broad St., Philadelphia, PA 19130. We hold volunteer orientations every Thursday night at 5:30pm on the second floor of our store. You can come into the store to sign up for the volunteer orientation, or you can call us at 215-546-9616 (x3). You can also check out our blog uhurufurniturephilly.blogspot.com for new items and volunteer projects. We're open 5 days a week from 11am-6pm, every day except Mondays and Tuesdays!
