CIT Group Inc. announced the launch of its second annual volunteer campaign, CIT Cares Month, a companywide initiative that inspires and encourages employees to volunteer in support of local communities and non-profit organizations nationwide.

"We're committed to improving the communities where we live, work and do business through our social responsibility and volunteer efforts," said CIT Chairwoman and Chief Executive Officer Ellen R. Alemany. "Our goal with CIT Cares Month is to connect our teams with service projects that align with the needs of those communities and with our employees' interests."

Throughout the month of June, CIT employees across the U.S. will clean parks and beaches, support children and families, and help feed the hungry – just to name a few of the more than 160 charitable events planned nationwide. The company will report on its projects in social media across the CIT Group pages and with #CITCares.

Last year, the inaugural CIT Cares Month was recognized as a finalist in the financial services category of the Shorty Social Good Awards. Notable accomplishments from that inaugural effort included: 32,400 meals served for the hungry in Portsmouth, N.H.; 600,000 servings of vegetables planted for hunger relief in the New York City area; 4,000 pounds of food restocked at a food pantry in Pasadena, Calif.; and 21 tons of food collected in Jacksonville, Fla.

CIT takes pride in the work it does to invest in communities, support sustainability and create a thriving workplace with the highest level of integrity. In 2017 the company established its corporate social responsibility framework centering on Empowerment, Environment and Wellness initiatives.
