A Columbus Charitable Organization Making Strides in the Fight Against Kidney Disease

Charitable Organization ColumbusNational Kidney Services (NKS) is a charitable organization in the Columbus area that accepts donations of used clothing and household items. All of the proceeds generated from these items go directly to the National Kidney Foundation (NKF), which is a nonprofit charity that is essential in the nation’s fight against chronic kidney disease.

Below are just a few of the reasons that NKS is so proud to work with this reputable charitable organization and why it is important to donate:

  • NKF enhances public awareness about kidney disease and the possibility of early detection through the “Love Your Kidneys” campaign.
  • Over the past 40 years, NKF has awarded more than $80 million in grants to kidney disease research projects.
  • More than 79 cents of every dollar donated to NKF goes directly to supporting its programs and services.
  • An organ donation campaign called “END THE WAIT!” strives to show people how important it is to become organ donors and save lives.
  • Through Congress and state legislatures, NKF tirelessly advocates on behalf of transplant recipients, kidney patients, and living donors.

 NKS accepts a wide variety of used items as donations, including clothes, shoes, jewelry, and housewares like small appliances, small furniture, electronics, DVDs, CDs, books, antiques, toys, and more. We offer free pickup service to our generous donors in Columbus, Dayton, Delaware, Lancaster, Springfield, Washington Court House, and the surrounding areas. All you need to do to arrange a donation collection at your home or business is call 614-351-2900 or sign up online. You can also drop off your tax-deductible* donations for our non profit at Ohio Thrift stores throughout Central Ohio.
