How your car donation helps
Supporting the Northeast Kidney Foundation through the Kidney Wheels car donation program helps those in Albany, NY and 13 other counties in the Upstate New York region affected by kidney disease and organ donation. Proceeds from this program are utilized for community based programs of prevention, education and support, including:
- Patient education, assistance, and support
- Free kidney screenings held throughout the northeast, designed to educate the public about risk factors and identify people in early stages of kidney disease, when it's most treatable
- School based programs that teach kids early on the importance of healthy lifestyle choises for lifelong kidney health
- Local research, providing important funding for clinical and academic researchers to advance kidney care in the local community
- Clinical education so we can keep our healthcare professionals on top of the latest standards in kidney and transplant care
- Corporate wellness programs, designed to assist employers in keeping their workforce healthy and productive
- Advocacy programs so that we can help our elected officials make informed decisions about healthcare
- Community education about organ donation and programs designed to increase the number of organ donors
- So much more!
