Collegeville, PA – The Make-A-Wish Foundation has experienced a surge of wish requests this summer. They have reached out for support, so Allied Wire & Cable is running a fundraising campaign with the hope of raising $20,000 or more to grant wishes for at least two children.

Recently, the Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Philadelphia, Northern Delaware & Susquehanna Valley approached Allied Wire & Cable for help when they were inundated with more wish requests than anyone anticipated. The Collegeville-headquartered wire and cable company responded with an impromptu fundraising campaign.

Since the mid-90s, Allied Wire & Cable has been teaming up with Make-A-Wish to make dreams come true for local children coping with life threatening illnesses. By supporting them through their annual Charity Week in December and other events, AWC has raised over $100,000 for this foundation.
The charity’s sudden need inspired immediate action from Allied. To help with the surge of wishes, they launched a summer campaign to raise funds. Allied is hoping to drum up $10,000 among their employees, customers, vendors, family, friends and the community.

The company plans to match that amount dollar for dollar, so if they are able to receive enough support, more than $20,000 will be raised to grant wishes for at least two special children.

According to statistics from the Make-A-Wish website, granting a wish costs about $7,500. This number is only an average. Some may cost as much as $10,000, and the charity says that the cost of a wish is not considered a factor when reviewing an application.

Allied is urging everyone to consider making a tax deductible donation to this benevolent organization. Every dollar will help to inspire the hope and courage these children need to cope with their medical conditions. To take advantage of Allied's fund matching campaign, donate by August 21, 2015 through their fundraiser page, donate.awcwire.com.
