Allied's 14K Donation Helps to Grant a Wish

Allied's 14K Donation Helps to Grant a Wish

Allied Wire & Cable recently raised and donated a total of $14,000 to grant a child a wish through the Make-A-Wish® foundation for Philadelphia, Northern Delaware & Susquehanna Valley during a recent charity event. Allied was proud and honored to receive a thank you letter letting us know how our donation helped a child in need. Our donation was used to grant a wish for a child named Ameer. Ameer’s mother wrote to the foundation saying that his wish of a shopping spree had been granted thanks to our generous donation and that having his wish granted, greatly lifted Ameer’s spirits. Allied wants to thank our customers and vendors for their continued support, participation, and contributions to help us with our commitment to charity.
