Fitzgerald named Corporate Volunteer of the Year

Paul Fizgerald, of Shelton, has been employed at Coca-Cola for 33 years and embodies the meaning of partnership. Coca-Cola has been a major sponsor of SWIM Across the Sound and the Medical Center Foundation for over 20 years. He consistently contributes Coca-Cola products for events including the SWIM Across the Sound Marathon, Aquathon, and golf tournaments.

Most recently, the Foundation sponsored its first Medical Mission at Home. An urgent need for bottled water arose and, once again, Paul and Coca-Cola stepped up to the plate and met the needs of the community.

"We consider Mary and Paul like family," explained Lyn McCarthy, executive director, St. Vincent's Medical Center Foundation. "Both are committed to making a positive difference in the community and deserve to be celebrated for their contributions."
