Allied Wire & Cable hosts 10th Annual Charity Week; donates over $18,000 to local charities

Collegeville, PA—Allied Wire & Cable hosts a charity week each year where a percentage of sales are donated to charitable organizations. This year was the electrical distributor’s tenth annual charity week, which was held from December 14th through 18th. The company donated $18,204.25 to four different charities in which an employee had a special connection.

For ten years now, Allied Wire & Cable has designated one week during the month of December to donate a percentage of sales to charity. The family-owned and operated electrical distributor has donated over $120,000 to many charitable organizations throughout the years, including charities like its local Make-A-Wish Foundation® of Philadelphia, Northern Delaware & Susquehanna Valley, the Humane Society and the American Cancer Society.

To honor its tenth charity week, the company chose to support organizations that have a special connection with the employees of each branch, including the headquarters in Collegeville, PA.

Debbie Piergrossi, a warehouse supervisor, is the chapter director of Pets for Vets in Pottstown, PA. Pets for Vets provides American veterans with a loving companion by rescuing and training shelter animals.
Debbie became involved with the organization after finding an article explaining the charity and found their connection with veterans intriguing. Her son is a war veteran who was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; she understands firsthand what other families can experience when a veteran returns home from war. Pets for Vets allows Debbie to help families going through similar situations.

In addition to donating to Pets for Vets, Allied also supported three other charities:

  • American Diabetes Association: fights for those affected by diabetes and funds research to help prevent and cure the disease (Tampa, FL branch).
  • Shriners Hospitals for Children — Twin Cities: a charitable hospital that specializes in treating children with orthopaedic conditions (Pewaukee, WI branch).
  • Marguerite’s Place: a transitional housing program that helps women and children in crisis become stable again (Merrimack, NH branch).

The total donation of $18,204.25 was split between these organizations; each charity received a check for $4,551.06.
