Allied Wire & Cable raises $10,000 for local Make-A-Wish Foundation

Collegeville, PA—In a time of great need, the Make-A-Wish Foundation reached out to Allied Wire & Cable for support. Allied responded with a summer fundraising campaign to help grant more wishes for children living with life threatening illnesses. A total donation of $10,000 was given to their local chapter in August.
The Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Philadelphia, Northern Delaware & Susquehanna Valley approached Allied Wire & Cable for help in late July, reporting an unexpected influx of wish requests.
A longtime supporter of the national charity, Allied launched a monthlong campaign to raise money from their community of customers, vendors, employees and friends. The wire and cable distributor promised to match the donated total. The campaign ended on August 21st, with $3,680 raised through donations. With Allied matching the contributions dollar for dollar, the total donation should have been $7,720. Because the average wish can cost up to $10,000, and Allied was determined to grant at least one full wish, they chose to more than double the raised amount, contributing $6,320 to meet that goal. The president of the local Make-A-Wish chapter, Dennis Heron, gratefully accepted the $10,000 gift, saying, “Thank you for helping us meet this wish granting demand. You have brought hope and joy to so many, and you are deeply appreciated.” Allied has supported Make-A-Wish since the mid-90s, and has raised over $100,000 for this foundation through their annual Charity Week each December and through other events. Though this summer’s campaign is over, Allied is sure to continue supporting Make-A-Wish.
