Hawker Beechcraft Donates to Local Children’s Home

The hard economic times have not dampened the spirit of holiday giving at Hawker Beechcraft Corp (HBC). The company's employees donated a total of $50,000 to the Wichita Children's Home last week. HBC supplier Rockwell Collins kicked in an additional $10,000 to the home, which has been in operation since 1888. Over the past five years, HBC and its employees have donated more than a half-million dollars to the home for destitute, abused and neglected children.
