GUN BUY BACK A HUGE SUCCESS
On Saturday, December 8, 86 handguns and 23 rifles were surrendered in a holiday gun buy back co-sponsored by the Wilkinsburg Sanctuary Project and the Wilkinsburg Police Department. Gift certificates to Giant Eagle of $50 for handguns and $25 for rifles were distributed thanks to the fundraising efforts of both partners. All guns are catelogued and then destroyed as prescribed by law. Thank you to our awesome Chief of Police, Cookie Coleman, for making this happen and for getting extra gift certificates to meet the crowd. For more information on this, please see the KDKA coverage of the event.
