KOKOMO -

Chrysler Group LLC has donated $500,000 to the Kokomo Family YMCA's plans to build a $15 million downtown center.

Chrysler vice president and head of powertrain manufacturing Brian Harlow Group announced the donation Thursday. He says it's part of Chrysler's commitment to help Kokomo with its ongoing efforts to enhance the city by revitalizing its downtown.

The 73,000-square-foot downtown center will have a health and wellness center, a double gymnasium, an indoor running track and a lap pool.

Chrysler currently employs more than 6,600 people in the Kokomo area. In February, the Auburn Hills, Mich.-based automaker announced an investment of nearly $374 million to boost its transmission production in the Kokomo area and add about 1,250 jobs.
