Your Car Can Help Drive Down Kidney Disease

This holiday season, avoid the crowded malls and give a gift straight from your driveway. Donate your old car to Kidney Cars and your gift will drive NKF’s awareness, prevention and treatment initiatives while providing a year-end tax deduction. Learn more at
