On Dec. 13, during the mid-day meal service, representatives from Spirit AeroSystems’ Kinston offices presented the rector of St. Mary’s Episcopal Church, the Rev. Michael Singer, and Marilyn Wiggins, director of Mary’s Kitchen, a donation for $10,000.
Wiggins applied for the grant earlier in the fall and was notified a few weeks ago by Spirit AeroSystems that Mary’s Kitchen was selected as a Spirit’s 2012 Supplier Golf Tournament Charity fund recipient.
Wiggins didn’t tell anyone about the donation until right before the presentation. The volunteer staff and patrons were totally surprised.
Wiggins said the money couldn’t have come at a better time as she has recently completed some much needed improvements for the organization.
