Our Non-Profit Group in Marietta, GA Strives to Help Patients with Kidney Disease
If you’ve never donated to a non-profit group in the Marietta, Georgia area or just aren’t sure which one to donate to, consider choosing American Kidney Services. Our organization differs from other non-profit groups because we collect donations of used and unwanted clothes and give all net proceeds to the American Kidney Fund, which helps patients with kidney disease by paying for their treatments. The type of financial support provided by our non-profit organization is especially beneficial because of the debilitating nature of kidney disease. Patients suffering from this disease oftentimes experience symptoms that greatly interfere with their daily lives, including:
- Muscle cramps and shortness of breath
- High blood pressure that is difficult to manage
- Nausea, vomiting, and/or loss of appetite
- Poor quality of sleep
- Swollen ankles
- Uncomfortably dry, itchy skin
In addition to these symptoms, individuals with kidney disease may suffer from anemia, weakened bones, and damage to their central nervous system.
It is due to the seriousness of this disease that our non-profit strives to help kidney disease patients. To help fulfill our mission, we make it especially easy for people living in the Marietta area to donate to us. For instance, if you want to donate items to our non-profit without leaving your home, simply fill out our online form to be added to our pickup call list. We will call you to let you know when our collection vehicles will be in your neighborhood. On your scheduled day, place the items you wish to donate in containers labeled “AKS,” and leave them either on your driveway or curb. One of our collection vehicles will then stop by your home and pick up your donations. If you’d prefer to leave your items in one of our drop boxes, we’ll help you locate the one closest to your home. Aside from it being a hassle-free process, one of the other benefits of donating to our non-profit group is that all of your donations are tax deductible.*
