Donating to Charity in Atlanta, Alpharetta, Roswell, Duluth & Surrounding Areas

donating_to_charity_greenYou probably never thought that donating to charity could help those in need and help the Earth. Giving your clothes and used household items to an Atlanta charity, like American Kidney Services (AKS), is a wonderful way to help kidney disease sufferers and prevent our local landfills from overflowing.

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that an average American produces about 4.5 pounds of trash each day – this means we produce half of the world’s garbage. However, 15 percent of that “trash” is actually reusable, durable goods. So the next time you want to get rid of clothing that no longer fits, a kitchen appliance that’s a few years old, or books you’ve already read, think about donating to charity before you toss those items in the trash.

AKS welcomes a variety of used goods, including:

  • Men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing
  • Silverware, glassware, plates, and serving dishes
  • Small kitchen appliances and electrical items
  • Miscellaneous decorative items
  • Drapes, bedding, and other linens
  • Televisions, CD players, DVD players, and radios
  • Any types of books
  • And more

AKS, in conjunction with the American Kidney Fund, turns your generous gifts into direct financial aid for patients suffering from kidney disease. We make donating to charity easy. Simply call 770-609-2200 or fill out our online form to add your name to our rotational donation pick up schedule. We offer standard weekday donation pick up, expedited pick up, and special weekend collections that are reserved for large loads. If you choose to make a donation drop off, bring your tax-deductible* donations to the AKS 24/7 storefront donation center in Atlanta, any of our 24/7 donation drop boxes, or Value Village locations.
