More often than not your vehicle is a lifeline that gets you where you need to go, whether that be work, the grocery store or a child’s soccer game. But, like most possessions, they eventually age, break down, become too small for a growing family or just don’t fit your lifestyle anymore. When this happens, we invite you to donate your vehicle to AKF and let your old lifeline become the lifeline for a kidney patient. Let your old car, truck, RV or even boat be the reason someone with kidney disease can keep his or her insurance and continue to live a full life. Your car can be a vehicle of change for countless kidney patients.
