During the event, Gershow collected 30,000 pounds of scrap metal, which wound up being recycled and kept out of landfills. Through the fundraiser and donations made by Gershow, $9,500 was raised to support the organization. Proceeds went to support renovations at Wardenclyffe. In addition to its sponsorship of the event, Gershow provided the use of a scrap metal container and handed out hats, magnets, sweatshirts and brochures to those in attendance.

Since 2013, Gershow has provided scrap metal containers for the TSCW as part of its efforts to help the non-profit organization renovate Wardenclyffe, which is the site of the only remaining laboratory of the famous inventor, Nikola Tesla. Plans for the property include a Tesla museum, an Education and Visitor Center with space to host community workshops and an innovation center for startup companies to help launch their businesses.

Gershow Recycling recently donated the use of a wrecked car in support of the Town of Huntington’s Anti-Drunk and Distracted Driving Campaign. Presented by Mark Cuthbertson, Councilman, Town of Huntington, and the Huntington Town Board, the program reminds residents of the dangers of drunk or distracted driving during the holidays.

Kevin Gershowitz, President, Gershow Recycling, took part in a press conference that was held on December 7, along with local elected officials, Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD), law enforcement personnel and Keys for Karen, a nonprofit organization formed by a local family who lost a loved one to a drunk driver.

Mr. Gershowitz thanked the Town, MADD and Keys for Karen for their public awareness efforts and noted that Gershow takes in thousands of vehicles that were involved in serious accidents each year, some of which were the result of drunk driving. “There’s no reason to drink and drive,” he said. “We have too many conveniences today with our cell phones and apps. If you don’t want to hurt yourself or, worse than that, if you don’t want to hurt someone else, don’t drink and drive.”

Gershow Recycling Grants Environmental Conservation Scholarships to Local Graduating High School Seniors

 

Despite the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on local businesses, Gershow Recycling continued to provide financial assistance to graduating high school seniors from Long Island and the New York metropolitan area with its Environmental Conservation Scholarship. Now in its 12th year, this one-time, $1,000 scholarship is given to a student who intends to continue their studies in either engineering or environmental science after graduation.

Most high schools also had to adapt to the pandemic as they transitioned to virtual scholarship ceremonies. This allowed local Gershow managers to record congratulatory messages for the recipients that could be viewed online.

This year’s recipients were Audrey Barry (Bellport High School), Nolan Kata (Bay Shore High School), Aden Hunter (Lindenhurst High School), Byanca Caetano-Soares (Patchogue-Medford High School), Brandon Thomas (Valley Stream Central High School), Jaden McAleese (Freeport High School), Subhana Zafar (Walt Whitman High School), Mary Tsahas (Herricks High School), Leyal Hamdan (Longwood High School), Kylie Plitt (Riverhead High School), and Clenio Correia (Frederick Douglass Academy VII High School).

For the second year in a row, Gershow partnered with the Medford Chamber of Commerce to present the Gershow Recycling/Medford Chamber of Commerce Scholarship. This year’s recipient was Adrian Rutkowski of Patchogue-Medford High School. This one-time award in the amount of $1,000 is presented to a Patchogue-Medford High School student who intends to continue studying environmental science, recycling or business.

Gershow has nine locations in Brooklyn, New Hyde Park, Valley Stream, Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington Station, Bay Shore, Medford and Riverhead. For more information, call (631) 289-6188 or visit www.gershow.com.
