CIT is again partnering with Feeding America to fight hunger this holiday season.
Customers, employees and social media followers are invited to join in donating One Million Meals to people in need. Participants can help direct the donations by choosing to support Feeding America's Mobile Pantry Program or MealConnect Program.
To participate, individuals are invited to follow #GiveLikeYou and visit CIT on Facebook or Twitter or OneWest Bank on Facebook to vote for one of the two Feeding America programs. For every vote or engagement (like, comment or share) on social media, CIT will direct 10 meals to the program of choice.
For every Savings Builder account opened through Dec. 17, 2019 at CIT's national online bank, CIT Bank, the company will donate 100 meals. Savings Builder is a digital savings product designed to reward consistent savers by providing a higher interest rate for those who deposit at least $100 each month.
In addition, the company will donate 100 meals for equipment financed by CIT through the digital Small Business Solutions platform through Dec. 17, 2019.
CIT’s Southern California retail division OneWest Bank will also donate 250 meals for every qualifying checking account opened through Dec. 31, in addition to providing a $250 cash back bonus for each account.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks.
