Make a Wish Update: Allied Sends Girl to Disney World!

Over the years, Allied has developed a strong relationship with the Make-A-Wish Foundation of Philadelphia & Susquehanna Valley, supporting them through fundraisers held several times throughout the year.   A few days ago, we received a letter from Karen Traten, the Director of Development, detailing the latest wish we’d helped grant.  We wanted to share the news with you, because your business and loyalty are what makes these donations possible.

In the letter, we were told about the local 4-year-old girl with leukemia that received her wish, thanks to our donation.  She loves Dora the Explorer and Sponge Bob, but she also loves the Disney characters and wanted nothing more than to have a family vacation.  (This wish is a very popular one; over 43% choose a Disney vacation, because it involves the whole family!)  She received full accommodations from Make-A-Wish, including air fare, transportation, food, spending money for each family member, free passes to the parks, special VIP treatment and a backpack filled with special gifts for her.  She spent the days in the parks, and then returned to the Give the Kids the World Village, where she and her family stayed.  There, they got to enjoy a gingerbread-house-themed restaurant, ice cream palace, gifts and other activities.

Giving back is very important to everyone in the Allied Family, and we know that includes our customers.  Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today, and we wouldn’t be able to make wishes like these come true. 

Thank you so much for your continued support of our charitable fundraisers and programs, including Make-A-Wish.
