Since 1989, CIC has donated nearly $9 million to youth-oriented agencies and organizations of Northeast Ohio, including a $1 million donation last April to the Boys and Girls Clubs of Cleveland's "Save the Kids" campaign. Additionally, high school baseball and softball in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District are alive only because of the multi-million-dollar commitment made by the Indians
