Entry Description
STATEHOUSE – State Representative Mike Karickhoff (R-Kokomo) thanks the Chrysler Foundation for their generous contribution to the United Way of Howard County and the Tipton County Foundation in order to help those affected by the recent floods.

“Our community greatly appreciates everything Chrysler has done to assist Kokomo in our time of need,” said Rep. Karickhoff. “After one of the worst floods on record, many of the local businesses in the area stepped up to make a difference and get people back on their feet. Chrysler has led the way, setting a great example of corporate commitment to the Kokomo community.” 

More than 500 Howard County residents were misplaced by the flood, and the $50,000 in grants given by the Chrysler Foundation will go toward placing these people back into permanent housing. 

“We’re truly thankful for all the encouragement and assistance,” Rep. Karickhoff said. “It emphasizes the true nature of Hoosier Hospitality and shows that in times of need people are more than willing to pitch in and give everything they can.”

If you would like to give a donation to the United Way of Howard County, please visit www.unitedwayhoco.org/give.php or send checks to 210 W Walnut, Kokomo, IN 46901 with HoCoFlood in the memo line.
