Kevin Gersh has dedicated his professional life to changing the lives of children on the autism spectrum. He believes that all children, despite their challenges, can learn and thrive in the right educational environment, with the right people guiding them.
Mr. Gersh is a philanthropist by nature and is committed to his involvement and service to the community. He participates and contributes to various charitable organizations including, Long Island Cares; Salvation Army; Supply Drive for Haiti Earth Quake; Supplies for Troops; Pennies for Patients; Toys for Tots; Patchogue Nursing Center; and Little Neck Nursing Home.
In 2009, Mr. Gersh joined forces with his father in running West Hills Day Camp. Founded by Edward Gersh in 1954, West Hills has been owned and operated by the Gersh Family since its inception. Kevin Gersh literally grew up at the camp, and his joyful memories of those special summer days, inspire him to provide as many youngsters as possible with the West Hills experience. Never straying far from his passion, during the summer of 2009, he designed a camp program within the West Hills Day Camp, directly tailored to children with special needs. This dynamic program has doubled in size each year. Why shouldn’t children with special needs enjoy the camp experience as well? They should, and they do, thanks to Mr. Gersh’s vision and dedication.
