  • (1888PressRelease) January 26, 2010 - Allied Wire & Cable is proud to announce the success of their 4th Annual Charity Week, which ran from December 14 to December 18 2009. Each year, Allied sets aside a portion of sales for a full week in December to donate to their charity of choice. This year's benefactor was the Make-A-Wish Foundation, chosen by Allied's customers in the first month-long poll held on their website. Allied has proudly supported Make-A-Wish for several years, including previous charity weeks, and were excited to have the opportunity to do so again.

    The Make-A-Wish Foundation aims to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions and the average wish can cost upwards of $7000. Allied raised a total of $9223.31 that will be split between Make-A-Wish and the other charities featured in the vote. Dennis Heron, President and CEO of the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Philadelphia & Susquehanna Valley, and Karen Traten, Director of Development, visited Allied on January 5th and were presented with a check for $7727.31.

    The remaining $1500 will be donated to the other charities, each receiving a $250 donation. These charities include: American Farmland Trust, ASPCA, Autism Speaks, Coalition to Support America's Heroes, Meals on Wheels Association of America and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

    Allied has always found it important to give back to those who are less fortunate, and greatly appreciates all the support it has received from customers that made this Charity Week a success.
