New-Car Dealers Breathe Life into the Community


For more than 10 years, the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association members have donated Little Annie cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training manikins to hospitals, police and fire departments and schools across the Greater New York Area.

GNYADA, in partnership with the NADA Foundation, has been involved in the CPR program for more than 10 years. GNYADA has helped facilitate the donation of over 50 CPR manikins, in the Greater New York area, to worthy groups through member dealers to train more people and help save lives.

In addition to providing new Resusci-Anne, Resusci-Baby and Resusci-Junior CPR training units as well as replacing worn out units, GNYADA members through the NADA Foundation also donates Little Anne AED (automated external defibrillators) training systems, so that organizations can teach individuals how to properly use these devices.
