250 community projects and 7,300 volunteer hours completed during CIT Cares Month

Press Release – NEW YORK, July 12, 2018 /PRNewswire/CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT) today announced the results of its annual employee volunteer initiative, CIT Cares Month. Throughout June, more than 250 community projects were completed by 1,900 volunteers over 7,300 hours across 18 locations to make a difference.

“CIT employees across the country demonstrated their commitment to serving the communities where they live and work,” said CIT Chief Marketing and Communications Officer Gina Proia. “From feeding the hungry to cleaning parks and beaches to building bikes for foster children, the CIT team used their time and talents to give back this summer and make a difference.”

Results of the volunteer efforts included packing and delivering over 130,000 pounds of food for the homebound, planting 1,300 pounds of healthy vegetables for communities in need, and cleaning parks and beaches from the East Coast to the West Coast.

Girls Who Code was the overall winner of the poll and received a grant to support the work they do to close the gender gap in technology. Wholesome Wave and the Surfrider Foundation also receive a modest grant for their participation in the contest.
