November 14, 2013 — The Gary Police Department will host another Gun Buy Back event on Saturday, Nov. 23, at six local churches, from 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

In addition to receiving a Wal-Mart gift card for turning in weapons, the first 50 people will receive a GED testing voucher.

Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson says city government wanted to offer something more for those who want to complete a milestone in their education.  She says this special initiative helps get guns off the streets and helps people move closer to gainful employment by helping them obtain their GED.

The gun buy backs will take place at:

Trinity Missionary Baptist Church
1831 Virginia St.

Pilgrim M.B. Church
1301 W. 21st Ave.

Embassies of Christ
4285 Cleveland St.

Grace Unity C.O.G.I.C.
3435 W. 21st Ave.

St. Andrew AME Zion Church
749 Chase Street

Beyond 4 Walls Christian Center
875 S. Lake St.
