Gershow Recycling was on hand to support the Islip High School Catapult Team at the tenth annual Long Island Championship Pumpkin Fling, which was held on October 27 in Suffolk County Farm and Education Center in Yaphank. Using their "Jack-O-Splatter,” the team won its division with a "fling” of 1,045.9 feet, breaking their own record they set at last year’s tournament with 906 feet.
In 2009, Gershow donated scrap iron to the team to help them build and reinforce the trailer for the "Jack-O-Splatter.” Since they do not have a budget within the school district, the team relies on donations from local businesses and people in the community.
In addition, Gershow donated windbreakers and hardhats to the team members. The Islip High School Catapult Team thanked Gershow for its sponsorship and its donation.
