As part of a family owned and operated business, the management team at Allied decided to take a different approach; one of "common sense" not "dollars and cents." Each employee is a member of the Allied family, and while others may have chosen to "tighten the belt" and "trim the fat" during the recent recession, we understand the importance of keeping more in mind than just the bottom line. We have always believed that our employees are non-expendable…definitely not "fat to be trimmed." Allied is proud to have not only maintained, but grown employment levels across all of its locations, ensuring job stability for each one of our valued employees. Employing a blend of industry veterans and adding young, fresh talent ensures not only our growth, but the healthy growth of knowledge in our industry.
As our company continues to grow and expand, we are proud to create new job opportunities in the communities surrounding our locations across the US. We are also dedicated to helping our customers grow their businesses by providing improved service and more AWC locations closer to home. We will continue to explore ways to better the communities we're located in and offer you the best customer service possible.
Responsibility to Our Community
Giving back to the community has always been important at Allied. We support many charitable organizations and host events to give back throughout the year, including sending packages to the troops, collecting gifts for children in need during the holidays, and more.
Charity Week is our main event. Each year, Allied sets aside one week in December to donate a percentage of all sales to a deserving charity. Charity Week has become a much loved tradition for both Allied employees and Allied customers – after all, we work together to make the donations possible, and together, we’ve been able to accomplish some great things for a lot of very deserving organizations. In the past, the proceeds of Allied's Annual Charity Week have gone to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, CureSearch for Children's Cancer, the American Cancer Society, the ASPCA, and Autism Speaks, among many other organizations.
BLOCS – Business Leadership Organized for Catholic Schools
Allied Wire & Cable has teamed up with BLOCS to improve education in the Philadelphia area and make sure that local children have access to really great schools. Through its relationship with the BLOCS program, Allied has funded more than 100 scholarships for students in need at schools like Pope John Paul II and St. Francis of Assisi. Allied has also proudly supported programs at the GESU school, located in one of the most marginalized neighborhoods in Philadelphia. Most students currently enrolled at the GESU school would be forced to attend one of the poorest performing schools in the city if left in the public school system. With the support of BLOCS and companies like Allied, more students have access to high quality, values-based education, helping them succeed not just in academics, but in becoming well-rounded, active members in their communities. Learn more about BLOCS.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation has a long history with Allied Wire & Cable. The charity has been the main beneficiary of many Charity Weeks, as well as many other special fundraising events AWC organizes throughout the year. Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening illnesses, and Allied has been grateful to help many of those dreams come true, including family trips to Disney World, trips to baseball camp and Phillies Spring Training, shopping sprees, bedroom makeovers, and even the installation of a special therapy pool. Thanks to the work of the Make-A-Wish Foundation, children and their families are given renewed senses of strength and hope when they need it most. Learn more about the Make-A-Wish Foundation.
Humane Society of the United States
As a family-owned and operated company, Allied loves to give back to family-oriented organizations...and we certainly don’t want to forget any four-legged members! Allied is proud to support the Humane Society and its mission to help animals – both wildlife and domestic – in any way they can. The Humane Society runs animal shelters and wildlife rehabilitation programs, advocates for animals in the political sphere, provides emergency response and rescue efforts, and so much more. Both the Humane Society and fellow animal-oriented charity, the ASPCA, have been beneficiaries of Allied’s Annual Charity Week. Learn more about the Humane Society.
