In support of the local community, Gershow Recycling recently sponsored and participated in the 30th annual National Night Out event on August 6 at Cow Meadow Park in Freeport. Those who came by Gershow’s table learned how to recycle their unwanted scrap metal. They also received literature on the company, recyclable shopping bags, hats and magnetic key chains.
National Night Out is a unique crime and drug prevention event sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch. It is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness; generate support for and participation in local anti-crime programs; strengthen neighborhood spirit and police/community partnerships; and send a message to the criminals, letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
