NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Boeing is donating more than $5 million to projects that will benefit children in the South Carolina.

Ray Conner, the president and chief executive officer of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, announced Tuesday that the aeronautics company is donating $5 million over five years for the new children’s hospital and woman’s pavilion at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston.

In addition, Boeing is donated $100,000 to support the Lowcountry Food Bank’s Childhood Hunger Programs. The gift will allow the agency to increase the number of children it serves by more than 50 percent.

Boeing has an assembly plant in North Charleston.

Last year, the company announced it is investing another $1 billion in the state, creating 2,000 jobs over eight years. Boeing already employs about 6,700 workers in South Carolina.
