WGCI Joins Community For 'Turning In Guns' in Chicago


This past weekend, on June 21st, Chicago's own WGCI and it's sister station (V103) teamed up with the community and the "City Of Chicago" for one main cause and that was for "Gun, Turn In Day!"

For those who may not know, Chicago has one of the highest murder rates, in the Nation; therefore, its only right for the community to come together and get the deadly weapons off the streets.

The event took place at several different locations throughout the city and one of the biggest turnouts just happened to be on the City's West Side. It was at Truth & Deliverance Church and it was hosted by WGCI's Morning Riot.

Throughout the event, people from all walks of life came out to show their support. They were given $100 Visa Gift Cards for each gun they turned in and they even had a chance to win great prizes from WGCI. 

Also, before the event was over, Apostle John T. Abercrombie took time to congratulate the people for coming out because he truly believes for every gun off the streets is another life saved.
