Stories of Volunteerism

Over the past seven years, our Jacksonville employees have collected nearly 90 tons (180,000 pounds) of food and toiletry supplies and donated the items to area charities, which has impacted the lives of thousands of Florida's residents.

This video highlights the tremendous amount of volunteer work our employees have provided and their commitment to supporting the communities in which they live and work. Their efforts are reflective of the important role community service plays at CIT.

Over the past eight years, CIT Jacksonville employees have collected more than 112 tons (224,937 pounds) of food and toiletry supplies and donated the items to area charities, including: 
• City Rescue Mission, which provides help to the homeless and needy in Jacksonville and Northeast Florida; 
• Sulzbacher Center, which provides comprehensive services, including street outreach, daily meals, safe shelter, case management support, job placement assistance, medical, dental, and mental health care to the homeless in Jacksonville; 
• Florida School for the Deaf and the Blind, a state public school located in St. Augustine that is available at no cost to individuals who are deaf/hard of hearing, or blind/visually impaired; and,
