Neale Kuperman, president of Rockland Toyota, Blauvelt, N.Y., presented a ‘Resusci Anne’ CPR training unit to the South Orangetown Ambulance Corps last week. The CPR training unit, worth more than $5,000, was donated by the National Automobile Dealers Charitable Foundation. It will allow South Orangetown Ambulance Corps personnel to train thousands of Rockland County residents on the correct way to provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR), allowing those trained to save the lives of countless people who suffer heart attacks and are in need of immediate attention. Rockland Country Executive Ed Day and Orangetown Supervisor Andy Stewart presided over the event.
South Orangetown Ambulance Corps Chief Wayne Roimisher and Assistant Chief Steve Harris, thanked Neale Kuperman, Rockland Toyota, NADA and GNYADA for the donation and reminded those in attendance of the important charitable role car dealers play in the communities in which they reside. “I cannot think of a more deserving group to receive this life-saving CPR unit than the South Orangetown Ambulance Corps. They play such an important role in the community and I know this equipment is greatly needed and will be much used,” said Neale Kuperman, president, Rockland Toyota and chairman of the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association.
Kuperman has a long history of community involvement. He has served on the board of directors of the Good Samaritan Hospital, and is a Rockland County Draft Board Committee member. He is a board member of the Helen Hayes Hospital Foundation where he has helped to raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for the hospital. He has received a Good Samaritan Hospital Medal of Honor and a Rockland County Business Award from the NAACP.
