Share this post

City of Gary
The Gary Police Department will be hosting another gun buyback event tomorrow, Saturday, November 23, at six local churches. City of Gary Director of Communications Chelsea Whittington says, in addition to receiving Wal-Mart gift cards, the first 50 people who turn in weapons that day will receive a GED testing voucher. Whittington says Pastor LaTonya Pettigrew, of St. Andrew AME Zion Church, put forth the idea back in August to have the GED incentive apart of this gun buyback event.
