We all want to do some good, but sometimes it can be difficult to find the right organization to trust when you’re ready to make a donation. If you’re looking for a worthy Atlanta charity to support, look no further than American Kidney Services (AKS). We welcome donations of clothing and household items from area residents to further our mission of helping organizations that fight kidney disease, including the American Kidney Fund. The proceeds these donations go toward funding invaluable programs that provide financial assistance and other community services to some of the approximately 31 million individuals nationwide who are affected by this life-threatening illness.

Making Donating Easier Than Ever Before

As a local charity based in Atlanta, AKS knows that not everyone has the time or means to travel out of their way to donate. That’s why we are proud to offer several convenient methods of donating, methods that allow you to donate in whatever way is easiest for you. You can give us your items by using any of the following options:
