Donate Clothing and Household Items
Your unwanted, unused, and unneeded clothing and other household items can assist our programs. The NKF of Florida has established a relationship with Sunshine Thrift Stores, Inc., a Florida for profit corporation. Outsourcing the management of this program to Sunshine Thrift Stores has been a part of fundraising efforts since 1982. In certain areas, clothing, shoes, linens, and small useable items are requested as a donation via postal mail. Customers wishing to participate may follow the specific instructions and receive a tax deductable receipt for their useable items. The donations are sold to Sunshine Thrift Stores and the proceeds are used to fund NKF of Florida programs and services. For more information on the clothing donation program contact NKF Truck Pickup Service or call (877) 448-2653. For more information on Sunshine Thrift Stores contact Sunshine or call (813) 831-4377.
A long-term illness followed by kidney failure takes its toll both physically and financially on kidney patients. The NKF of Florida provides assistance to Florida patients in need. Requests can be made for assistance with medications, transportation to and from dialysis, and emergency one-time grants. To apply for these funds, patients must contact their renal social worker and complete an application.
