uhuru furniture and collectibles

Over the weekend, I had the opportunity to speak with a non-profit organization called Uhuru Furniture and Collectibles, located on Spruce Street in Center City.   Uhuru has a very interesting business model unlike your ordinary furniture store.  They pick up furniture donations, resell them, and give all the proceeds to the African Peoples Education and defense fund, which seeks to build sustainable economic development in the African community.  It is great to see businesses dedicated to doing the right thing and certainly a good recommendation for anyone you know who is moving and will have some extra furniture.  They schedule fast and free pickups with friendly professionals doing all the moving.
