Collegeville, Pa.-based Allied Wire & Cable recently announced the success of its 4th annual Charity Week, which ran from December 14 to December 18.

This year’s recipient was the Phoenix-based Make-A-Wish Foundation, chosen by Allied’s customers in a month-long poll held on the company's Web site. 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.
