CIT Group Inc. is celebrating its annual Global Employee Volunteer Program (GEVP). This program has been in place since 2006 and has been growing every year. CIT employees have donated thousands of hours of their personal and work time to many worthy causes.
CIT encourages their employees to partner with local nonprofit groups in communities in which they live and work. This level of autonomy gives colleagues the opportunity to reach out and develop new collaborations, continue to support long standing relationships and strengthen existing philanthropic partnerships.
In addition to GEVP, CIT employees participate in Shared Harvest, their global food drive program. Inspired by the efforts in the Jacksonville, Florida office, CIT started its company-wide food drive program in 2013. In the last two years, CIT employees have donated over 110 tons of food to their local food organizations.
Throughout GEVP, employees are taking the time to improve the lives of others and further develop their neighborhoods. As they clean parks, feed the hungry, build homes, assist the elderly and raise funds for charity, they mirror the year-round effort of the company’s community involvement teams and reinforce the longstanding commitment CIT has made to create a lasting impact on those around us.
Congratulations CIT Group, Inc.!
