Guns for groceries: Buy-back Saturday in South Philly

Gun buy-back scheduled for Saturday

Guns for groceries: Buy-back Saturday in South Philly

Give up your gun, get some groceries.

Philadelphia Police, Browns Shoprite and Philadelphia Safety Net are teaming up this Saturday to host a gun buy-back program at the supermarket at Broad Street and Washington Avenue in South Philadelphia. Citizens who turn in guns from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. will get a $100 food voucher to the Shoprite. Anyone can participate.

Correction: Thanks, tonyjlive, the event is at that corner, not the supermarket. Sorry for the confusion. Apparently, I need more coffee this morning.
