Give to a Charity Group by Scheduling a Free Donation Pick Up in Charlotte or a Surrounding Area

Charity Group CharlotteNational Kidney Services (NKS) is the local charity group that Charlotte area residents turn to when they want to make sure their donations are going to a good cause. Our mission is to collect used clothes and household items in an effort to generate proceeds that go directly to the National Kidney Foundation and a variety of programs for kidney disease prevention and education. With the help of community members like you, we’re making strides in the battle against this widespread illness.

Our kidney charity group offers free donation pick up service for our donors throughout Charlotte, which is just one of the reasons that we stand out from other local charities. It’s easy to add your name to our regular donation pick up call list. Simply call 704-393-5780 or sign up online and an NKS representative will contact you approximately every 4-6 weeks to inquire if you have donations ready for pick up. In addition to standard weekday pickups, our charity group also offers expedited pickups if you need your items picked up in one week or less, and special Saturday collections for the items that go unsold after garage sales, community sales, and estate sales.

If you would prefer to make a donation to our nonprofit by dropping your contributions off, simply bring them to any Value Village thrift department store in the Charlotte area, including locations in Gastonia, Kannapolis, and Mooresville. NKS gladly welcomes a wide variety of donated items, including used clothes, home décor, cookware, tableware, small appliances, furniture, electronics, books, toys, antiques, collectibles, and more. All contributions to our local charity are tax deductible.*
