AWC's 11th Annual Charity Week December 19th – 23rd

Continuing one of our favorite holiday traditions, Allied Wire & Cable will be hosting our 11th annual Charity Week from December 19th to December 23rd. Just place your order during our designated Charity Week and not only will you get the wire and cable you need, but you’ll also be giving hope and support to a deserving organization who is in need of our help.

Over the last ten years, we've donated over $100,000 to a variety of charitable organizations, but this year, we wanted our customers to help pick the charity. Thank you to everyone who participated in our surveys! The top two choices were charities that supported animals and veterans, and we found one that combines both of these fine categories. Our 2016 beneficiary is:

K9s For Warriors!

 

 

Benefitting K9s For Warriors

Charity Week 2016 will benefit K9s for Warriors, a wonderful organization dedicated to rescuing dogs at risk, training them as Service companions for military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, and other trauma as a result of military service post-9/11. This organization rescues dogs at risk and trains them as Service K9s in their facility, Camp K9. Over 90% of the dogs are surrendered or rescued from local shelters and humane societies, and most of them are just within hours of being euthanized.

Help Us Sponsor a Warrior and Dog Pair

We need your help! For a dog and a warrior to graduate from this program, it costs over $20,000. If we reach our goal of $20,000 this charity week, we can adopt a dog and follow the Service K9's progress through the program via picture updates. We even get to name our dog! We'll follow the dog through training, all the way to placement with a military hero where we'll receive a photobook from the time the warrior trained and bonded with the dog.

How will my order count toward the donation?

During the week of December 19th-23rd, a percentage of all sales will go toward our donation. All you need to do is place your order during our designated Charity Week and you will not only get the wire and cable you need, but you will also give hope to both families and animals in desperate need of it.

Help us give to those in our very own backyards this holiday season. Place your orders the week of December 19th-23rd.

Charity Week in Review

Over the last ten years, with your help we've been able to donate nearly $150,000 to deserving organizations through our annual Charity Week alone. We're raising more every year! For more on the history of Charity week, check out our blog.
