Listen to your headphones while you volunteer and get to know Philly! Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles - Philadelphia is looking for volunteers to make a weekly commitment to taking our posters all over the city.
You would be postering/door hanging/flyering/leafleting on designated routes to promote our free furniture donation pick-up in support of sustainable economic development projects. Hang them in store windows and on bulletins in all kind 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!
And don't feel like you're not making a difference - your work gets results! We get several furniture donations every week just from hanging these posters.
