Joint Initiative Takes Seven Guns Off Cleveland Streets Through Unique Buyback Program

We’re pleased to share a recent article published on that highlights a successful gun buyback initiative we co-sponsored with Edwins Leadership & Restaurant Institute and the Cleveland Cavaliers. The event, held at Edwins Life Skills Second Chance Center, resulted in the collection of seven guns from the community. Gift cards to Edwins’ fine-dining restaurant were offered as an incentive. We invite you to read the full article to learn more about this important community effort to make our streets safer.
