Cleveland Indians first baseman Nick Swisher makes donation to FBI program

CLEVELAND - Indians first baseman Nick Swisher has donated $25,000 to the FBI Citizens Academy Foundation in support of the FBI's Child ID Kit program.

Swisher, who signed a four-year contract with the Indians in January, made the announcement prior to Thursday's game against Cincinnati.

Swisher said he and his wife, JoAnna, made the decision because they want to be involved in the community. Swisher also cited the incident that took place earlier this month when three women were rescued from a home on the city's west side after being missing for nearly a decade.  

Each kit includes an inkless fingerprinting card, a DNA collection envelope and a cutout wallet card. The completed ID kit can immediately give authorities the information they need to assist in their efforts to locate a missing child.
