“Your donation is something the people in Vallecillo always wanted and never thought they were going to get, for them this is a wish come true and an answered prayer,” CEPUDO President Linda Coello said.

Cetronia Ambulance Corps CEO Robert F. Mateff Sr. said those working in the organization, also a nonprofit, understand the value of generosity.

“Just seeing the picture of our vehicle in its new home makes us proud since we know the mission is the same as ours. We hope it helps save just as many lives as it did for us in Lehigh Valley," he said.
