Wichita, KS - September 21, 2004 - Cessna Aircraft Company presented The Salvation Army of Orlando, Florida, with a check for $10,000 to aid those facing the destruction left by the recent hurricanes. Walter Berchtold, General Manager of Cessna's Orlando Citation Service Center, personally presented the check to The Salvation Army's Laurelie Hagen.
