Our Charity Accepts Clothes and Used Household Items – Residents of Columbus, Lancaster, Dayton & Surrounding Areas Can Donate Today

Charity Clothes ColumbusNational Kidney Services (NKS) is a worthy local charity that accepts clothes and a variety of used household items. Not only are you able to help those in need while clearing clutter from your closet, but all of your contributions are tax deductible* because NKS is an approved 501(c)(3) charity. In addition to all of these great benefits, it’s also extremely easy to donate to our organization because we offer a variety of convenient ways to contribute, such as free donation pick up service, donation drop boxes throughout Central Ohio, and Ohio Thrift stores that have agreed to accept donations on our behalf.

Here are a few tips for finding clothes to donate to our charity:

  • Check your closet for clothes you haven’t worn in at least a year.
  • Donate clothes that your children have outgrown.
  • Donate last season’s styles if you think you may not wear them again.
  • Make a donation of any clothes that go unsold at a yard sale or community sale.

When you’ve gathered clothes for our charity, simply pack them in bags or boxes and label with “NKS.” If you would like NKS to pick up your donations, fill out our online form or call 614-351-2900 to be added to our donation call list.  Standard weekday pickups are available Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to dark. An expedited clothes pick up or a Saturday special collection is also available upon request.
