Spirit donates school supplies to Salvation Army

WICHITA, Kansas – Wichita students only have two more weeks of summer vacation left before school starts, and one local company stepped up to make sure kids have new supplies.

Employees of Spirit AeroSystems donated hundreds of school items to the Salvation Army Monday.

They also presented a check for $42,000 so the Salvation Army can buy even more gear.

“It’s important for our kids to get a good start, and it’s important for them to be successful in school so they can go on to be successful in life,” said Major Glen Caddy, Salvation Army.

Major Caddy says they expect to help about 10,000 children over the next week or two.
