How to Make Charity Donations in Charlotte & Throughout North Carolina & Upstate South Carolina

Charity Donations in CharlotteCharity donations to National Kidney Services (NKS) help us to fulfill our mission of supporting programs that increase the quality of life for kidney patients and promote kidney disease prevention and education initiatives. We proudly donate proceeds generated from your donations of used clothing and household items to the National Kidney Foundation, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit health organization that has been named a Four-Star Charity by Charity Navigator.

Making charity donations to NKS is easy with our donations pick up service. Simply follow the steps below to do your part in helping us to fight this national epidemic.

  • Call us or fill out our online form to add your name and phone number to our donation pick up call list. Our donation pick up trucks operate on a rotational, 4-6 week schedule, Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to dark. Special collections are available upon request.
  • On the day before your scheduled donations pick up, you’ll receive a reminder call from NKS.
  • Gather donations of used men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing, small appliances, electrical items, decorative items, books, toys, and much more.
  • Please bag or box all charity donations and label them with “NKS.” Drivers are not permitted to pick up any unlabeled items.
  • Put your donations outside, preferably near the mailbox or in a place where they will be easily visible from the road. You may also put donations in a garage or carport, but please be advised that NKS drivers are not permitted to enter your home or pick up items that aren’t specifically labeled for our charity.
  • Our professional, courteous drivers will leave a tax receipt for you, as all charity donations to NKS are tax deductible.*
