Every Donation to American Kidney Services Benefits Kidney Disease Patients
Each time a donation is made to American Kidney Services (AKS) there is no question of who benefits from this selfless act. Every donation to our charitable organization helps support our mission of providing assistance to kidney disease patients in need – and there are plenty of people who, unfortunately, fit into this category.
Kidney disease is a life-threatening condition that has been diagnosed in more than 31 million Americans. Currently the ninth-leading cause of death in the United States, kidney disease is oftentimes caused by diabetes and high blood pressure, and it can lead to a host of other health problems, including heart attack, stroke, and, of course, kidney failure. Many people who have been diagnosed with kidney disease struggle to cover the costs associated with adequate treatment, such as dialysis. That is where the generosity of people who are willing to make a donation to AKS can help.
Donations to our charity generate proceeds that help support valuable programs and services of the American Kidney Fund (AKF), a nonprofit charity that provides, among other things, direct financial aid to chronic kidney disease sufferers for treatment-related expenses. In 2012 alone, the AKF provided direct assistance to patients in all 50 states and to more than 84,000 people nationwide. Every donation helps, and finding items to donate to AKS is easy. Our charitable organization accepts many common household items, including clothing, furniture, electronics, toys, books, antiques, housewares, and more.
