"We Want Your Discards"
For a pick up call: 704-393-5780 or Toll free 866-408-6464
Several times each year, a representative of Carolina Value Village will telephone residents in your neighborhood seeking donations of furniture, clothing (men's, women's, and children's) and other household items.
The representative will confirm a date when a truck can come to your home and pick up items. Each collection of items provides a donation to the NKF. Each donated item is prepared for resale to the public at Carolina Value Village, making fine quality goods available at thrift store prices. One hundred percent of the proceeds received by the NKF supports patient programs. All donated items are tax deductible at present fair market value in accordance with IRS regulations.
KEEP® Early Detection Screenings
NKF's Kidney Early Evaluation Program (KEEP®) offers free screenings for those at risk. Through three simple tests that determine kidney function, the KEEP program is finding kidney disease at the earliest stage possible. Find a screening near you.
