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.
