5 Ways AWC and Education Are Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

We all know the peanut butter and jelly sandwich is like the epitome of a perfect union, but maybe the relationship between Allied and education isn’t so clear. Learning is important to us, whether it means helping a student or a school with a sticky situation or just keeping engineers and salespeople up-to-date on wire and cable industry news. Read on to see how Allied and Education go together like peanut butter and jelly!

1. We make kids happy.

A PB&J is one of the ultimate kid-friendly foods, right up there with chicken nuggets and mac-n-cheese. We can’t say Allied is as delicious as all that, but our grants and scholarships have been known to put smiles on the faces of local students.


 2. We’re a winning combination.

Peanut butter and fluff is all well and good, but peanut butter and jelly is the tried and true recipe for success. High school and college clubs and competition teams in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fields sometimes find themselves in a jam, with tight budgets for their prototype projects. AWC loves to do whatever we can to supply them with the quality materials they need to build their robots, electronic vehicles and boats at prices they can afford.

3. We’re your go-to.

Don’t know what to make for lunch? A PB&J will never let you down. Neither will Allied’s educational resources. When you’ve got a wire and cable question, check out our Allied Encyclopedia series, informational videos, FAQ pages and more.



4. We’re satisfying.

The trusty PB&J can be counted on to fill your stomach and satiate your sweet and salty cravings. Allied can satisfy college degree requirements for internships, while students gain valuable experience in areas such as accounting, human resources, sales and warehouse operations. And in case you were wondering, we pay our interns! Click to read more about the success of our internship program in this feature from Philly.com.


5. We stick together.

Peanut butter and jelly sticks. It sticks to your fingers and the roof of your mouth, but above all, it sticks together. The Allied family sticks together too. That’s why every year we award a scholarship to the child of an Allied employee! Meet this year’s scholarship winner, Peyton Lamkins. She’s the coolest thing since sliced bread!
