Donate Clothes in Columbus, Dayton & Lancaster – Used Men’s, Women’s & Children’s Clothing in High Demand

Donate Clothes in OhioNational Kidney Services (NKS) encourages you to donate clothes to our Columbus area charity. Clothing makes an excellent contribution because it is always in such high demand. By generating proceeds from your generous contributions of men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel, we’re able to give those funds to the National Kidney Foundation of Ohio (NKF). NKF is a nonprofit health organization whose work is instrumental in the statewide and nationwide fight against kidney disease.

If you would like to donate clothes, but aren’t sure where to start, below are a few tips for gathering used apparel:

  • Check your closet for clothes you haven’t worn in over a year or garments that have gone out of style.
  • Ask your children to look through their drawers for clothes they’ve outgrown. Baby clothes also make excellent donations and are always in high demand.
  • The next time you have a garage sale or a community sale, make a clothing donation of the apparel that remains unsold at the end of the day.
  • Keep a small box at your office and tell coworkers about NKS and our mission. Encourage them to bring in clothes that they would like to donate.

Once you’re ready to donate clothes, shoes, or accessories, simply call NKS or fill out our online form to add your name to our regular call list. You’ll be contacted each time we’re scheduling a donation pick up in your area, whether you’re in Columbus, Lancaster, Washington Court House, Delaware, Springfield, or elsewhere in Central Ohio. Expedited donation pickups and special Saturday collections for large donation loads are also available upon request. If you prefer to make a donation drop off, bring your clothing donation to any of the Ohio Thrift locations. And remember, when you donate clothes or household items to NKS, your generous contributions are always tax deductible.* Contact us to find out more about how we stand out from other local charities.
