Alsco Inc., the premier uniform and linen rental services company, recently made a contribution to the consortium Friends Are By Your Side in support of their Fourth Annual Night of Wigs and Wishes.
On Sunday, October 23, 2016, Friends Are By Your Side held a gala to fund their efforts in granting wishes and providing wigs to children and women suffering from cancer.
