Gershow donated a junk vehicle to the town as part of the campaign.
Gershow Recycling recently donated 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 10, along with local elected officials, law enforcement personnel and a local family who lost a loved one to a drunk driver. They urged everyone not to get behind the wheel if they have been drinking.
“There is no excuse of why you should be in a car under the influence, whether you are behind the wheel or you are a passenger with someone who is under the influence,” Mr. Gershowitz said. “Just don’t do it.”
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.
