Residents of Canton Can Donate to American Kidney Services & Help Those in Need

who_to_donate_toIf you donate in Canton, how can your contribution help people throughout the nation? The answer is simple – American Kidney Services (AKS). As a kidney disease charity based in Atlanta, we work with generous donors like you to collect donations of clothing, electronics, household items, and more in order to generate proceeds that go directly to the American Kidney Fund (AKF). AKF works tirelessly to promote kidney disease awareness, increase patient legislation, and offer direct financial assistance to kidney patients for treatment-related costs. Therefore, by giving locally you help nationally – how easy is that?

Below are just a few of AKF’s recent achievements:

  • In 2010, AKF was able to offer treatment related financial assistance to more than 101,000 dialysis patients throughout the nation.
  • Campaigns to promote public awareness about kidney disease reached more than 13 million people, and nearly 2 million pieces of educational health literature were distributed.
  • In 18 cities throughout the country, there were nearly 13,000 people who received free kidney disease screenings.

AKS makes it convenient for residents of Canton to donate to our organization and benefit AKF because we offer free donation pick up service throughout the area.
