The National Kidney Foundation is a major voluntary nonprofit health organization, dedicated to preventing kidney and urinary tract diseases, improving the health and well-being of individuals and families affected by kidney disease and increasing the availability of all organs for transplantation.

The National Kidney Foundation conducts many different types of charitable fundraising activities to provide services to families and patients in need. Our clothing donation and truck pick up program is just one way you can help support this benevolent charity. By donating your used clothing and household items, you can provide needed support for our mission and help Floridians. Your items remain in the community (no exporting) and unusable items are recycled when possible.

How Does the Clothing Donation Process Work?
For over 30 years, NKFF has partnered with Sunshine Thrift Stores and Collection Solutions & Management (Florida registration #67971) to collect household items and clothing from the general public. Collection Services Management uses direct mail and other methods to notify the public of the needs. Trucks are then dispatched to neighborhoods to collect the donations. Donated items are then sold to local thrift stores and the money generated will be used to help the NKFF with its core mission, competencies, and programs.
Why Doesn't the National Kidney Foundation of Florida Charity Use My Donated Items Directly?
Enlisting in a trusted and registered partner to collect, clean, sort, and repackage items donated to the Clothing Donation Program allows us to focus our charitable resources on our mission and programs.
In addition to generating funds for our programs, the stores we work with that sell the clothing and household items provide a valuable community service through jobs and low-cost shopping opportunities for families on limited budgets. The company recycles most items it can’t use, keeping waste out of the landfill.
