-- Fitzgerald Auto Malls was honored at the Washington Business Journal's 2014 Corporate Philanthropy Awards event and tied for second place last Thursday for the MassMutual Citizenship Award. Fitzgerald Auto Malls received recognition for their Child Safety Seat program, run in partnership with the Montgomery County Safe Kids Coalition.
The Child Safety Seat inspection program is an initiative started in 1999 by Jack Fitzgerald, CEO and founder of Fitzgerald Auto Malls. Monthly events are held at the Fitzgerald Auto Mall dealerships with on-site certified child safety seat technicians to help teach parents and caregivers the proper way to install a child safety seat.
"Good people like to do good things, and the good people at Fitzgerald Auto Malls dedicate their time and hard work. Our partnership with Montgomery County's Safe Kids Coalition and the Fire & Rescue Department make the Child Safety Seat campaign successful," said Jack Fitzgerald.
"I want to applaud all the volunteers for our recent milestone, installing and inspecting 45,000 child seats -- a record number of inspections that no other local volunteer program has achieved within a single program," Fitzgerald added.
