Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles - Philadelphia will work with you to set up a group "Doorhanging Day!"
You are invited to bring anywhere from 2-25 people to volunteer together on a single day. We will work with you to arrange a 4-hour block of time on the day that works best for you & your group. We'll provide a brief training, water & snacks for all volunteers. For larger groups, it is possible to arrange lunch as well.
Your efforts support the African People's Education and Defense Fund (APEDF.org). Each hour worked by a member of your volunteer group raises $100-$150 for sustainable economic development in the hands of the African community. For example: if your group has 15 volunteers, in just 3 hours you will have raised $1500-$2250 for the African People's Education and Defense Fund!
What is "Doorhanging"?
* A fun, outdoor project that is physical and lets you explore Philly
* An activity that is great for medium to large groups
* Organized teams of 2 take designated city blocks and hang Uhuru flyers on doorknobs (no knock & talk!)
* Promotes Uhuru Furniture all over Philadelphia for furniture donations & shopping
* Reaches donors right at their door, creating immediate and future donations for Uhuru!
Every year, Uhuru Furniture engages hundreds of volunteers to meet our yearly goal of distributing 30,000-40,000 doorhangers! We work with high school & college groups, as well as various fraternities & sororities, and other volunteer organizations. If your group engages in community service, or your school has a community service requirement, an Uhuru Furniture "Doorhanging Day" is perfect for you!
The African People's Education and Defense Fund is initiating programs across the country for sustainable economic development, community & youth upliftment, health and social justice in the black community.
