We work with hundreds of volunteers every year and have some fun and exciting opportunities available.

Uhuru Furniture & Collectibles has been working with volunteers for the past 26 years! We were recently voted “Best Furniture Store” by the reader’s poll of the East Bay Express for the 5th year in a row and “Best Furniture Store” by Oakland Magazine.
