Spirit Aerosystems helping needy families this holiday

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – A lot of families in and around Wichita will have a happier holiday thanks to the employees at Spirit Aerosystems.

They collected more than $12,000 and that was turned into trucks full of supplies and gifts. It is the tenth year that Spirit has taken part in the Angel Tree program.

The Salvation Army says they had more than 3,200 families apply for help through the Angel Tree program, and that alone equals more than 10,000 gifts.

It will all be distributed later this week.
