BREAKING: Chrysler donates $50,000 to flood relief

The areas biggest employer, Chrysler Group, is donating $50,000 to assist the victims of the April flooding in Howard and Tipton counties.

Chrysler officials presented $25,000 checks today to both the United Way of Howard County and the Tipton County Foundation.

The Chrysler donation comes a day after Duke Energy made a $10,000 donation for flood relief to the United Way of Howard County.

Both announcements come after the Federal Emergency Management Agency said the flood ravaged areas of Howard, Tipton and Grant counties didn’t qualify for federal financial assistance to individual property owners.

The U.S. Small Business Administration will be in Howard and Tipton counties next week to provide loans to small businesses, homeowners and renters for damage suffered during the flooding. For those who don’t qualify for SBA assistance, the Indiana Disaster Relief Fund may provide up to $5,000.
