KINSTON, NC (WNCT) – Mary’s Kitchen received a $20,000 donation from Spirit Aero Systems.
Two $10,000 checks were given to the facility, one from the Good Neighbor Fund, the other from the company’s Golf Charity.
Executive Director, LaTonya Smith, says the money is needed for continued operation, which feeds the hungry.
“It is so helpful because on average we feed 130 people a day, seven days a week. That’s on average. There are a lot of days that we feed more than 130 people.”
Mary’s Kitchen is funded through donations and grants.
They plan to use the money on food supplies, as well as repairs on the building.
