Make-A-Wish Update

Allied Wire & Cable has been supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation® for several years now, and it’s always very gratifying to receive news about how our contributions have been used.

On April 14th a letter arrived to our headquarters that detailed how our recent contributions had granted the wishes for two children in the Philadelphia area.

A 13-year-old boy’s wish was to meet the Philadelphia Phillies.  He was flown to Clearwater, FL, where he met the team during spring training.  Raul Ibanez gave him a personal tour of the clubhouse and threw to him for batting practice, where Milt Thompson gave him some hitting tips.  He was also made the honorary bat boy for the game.

A 16-year-old boy’s wish was for a laptop computer.  This type of wish is very rare, only 2% select it.  Not only did he receive a brand new computer, he also received a printer, accessories, games, software and a computer desk with a chair.  The family was also provided installation and tutorial services at their convenience, and a party was thrown to celebrate the delivery.

Without you our contributions could not have been made, and we would like to share part of the thank you letter we received:

“It has been said that doctors provide the medicine and Make-A-Wish offers the magic and the hope for a future.  On behalf of the children whose wishes provided huge smiles, long hugs, tears of happiness, and vivid memories, we extend heartfelt thanks to you for helping to share the power of a wish®.”

Thank you to everyone that helped make these contributions possible!
