|Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles 3742 Grand Ave., Oakland, CA 94610|
Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles proudly announces its existence for twenty years on Grand Avenue in Oakland in support of African community self-reliance and human rights. Join us at our Open House, Sale (11am-6pm) and Holiday Pie Tasting (noon ‘til 4pm) Dec. 20th at Uhuru Furniture 3742 Grand Ave, Oakland. You can also support by calling to schedule a donation pick-up and get your 2009 tax deduction too.
Exacerbated by the current economic crisis, the conditions in the African community are worsening, with health care almost non-existent, escalating unemployment and predatory sub-prime lenders causing record home foreclosures.
Uhuru Furniture raises money for programs like the Uhuru ‘Freedom’ Gardens, a network of community and collective gardens in the U.S. as well as two institutions that provide vital economic development for the African community, a professional recording studio and a licensed kitchen. These projects are model institutions that will be reproduced in every city in the U.S. and around the world.
