Cindy Bass, who will become the 8th District's councilwoman in January, is one of the sponsors behind a gun exchange program happening Saturday.
In conjunction with Philadelphia Safety Net, State Sen. Anthony Hardy Williams (D-8), Brown ShopRite of Cedarbrook and several other organizations, two locations will be accepting guns in exchange for a $100 Shop Rite gift card.
The Germantown location is the Lonnie Young Recreation Center at Chelten Avenue and Ardleigh Street.
The other location is Myers Recreation Center at 58th and Kingsessing streets. Both locations will participate in the program between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
According to the press release, Philadelphia Safety Net has collected more than 5,000 guns across Philadelphia in the last three years.
