On April 2, Tanya Pottinger, Human Resources Generalist, Gershow Recycling, presented a check in the amount of $500 on behalf of Gershow Recycling to the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. Suffolk County Alumnae Chapter to cover the cost of pedometers the organization gave out at its Health & Foster Care Expo, which was held at the Huntington Station Enrichment Center. Ms. Pottinger was joined at the event by her sister, Carol Whitehorn, who is a member of Project S.H.A.P.E.

Those in attendance received a pedometer courtesy of Gershow. They used the pedometers to measure how many steps they took while visiting the vendors' tables and taking part in dance exercises.

The Health & Foster Care Expo offered presentations on blood pressure, hygiene, smoking cessation, mental health and weight management. Those in attendance also received advice from medical professionals, tried some of the healthy food samples and took part in games and dancing.
