June: CIT Cares Month

In June 2017, CIT launched a month-long program called CIT Cares Month, encouraging employees to get out in their communities and volunteer their time and talents. CIT supports this initiative annually by giving employees one paid day off to volunteer. Big or small, every project makes a positive difference.

The Importance of Giving Back

"It is important to always give back to those in need. I love that CIT not only provides employees the opportunity to volunteer for 8 hours during the month of June, they encourage it!  Giving back - what a wonderful feeling!"
