Acts of Caring

#CITCares

Empowered to make a difference

Our CIT team has been making a positive impact in our communities by performing Acts of Caring this summer – simply doing something good, wherever we are.

Our customers got involved too, and told us about programs that make a difference in their communities. We’re providing 10 outstanding organizations a grant to further their important efforts. 

And thanks to the participation of our customers, employees and followers, we are able to make an even greater impact. We have doubled our grant to Flushing Town Hall, who received the most support in our Acts of Caring poll.  

You voted: Spotlight on Flushing Town Hall

fth-aoc-final

Flushing Town Hall received the most support from customers and followers in our Acts of Caring poll, and as a result we have doubled its grant to expand virtual family programming for the diverse communities of Queens, NY. Flushing Town Hall provides cross-cultural programming to help build community in an environment where people from all over the world share the same space. CIT’s support will help deliver the organization’s virtual programs to thousands of families, school-aged children, teachers and community members. 

Flushing Town Hall is one of ten organizations nationwide that we will work with this summer to fulfill the needs identified by our customers.

Empowered to make a difference

As part of our Acts of Caring program, we invited customers to nominate a need in their hometown and share how we could support those efforts on their behalf. Get to know our grant recipients.
