As a sign of peace and solidarity with Orlando, the Miami Beach Police Department and the Miami Beach Community Church (500 Lincoln Road at the corner of Lincoln Road and Drexel Avenue) will be collecting guns on Sunday, June 19, from 10:30-11:30 am.
“We are honoring those who lost their lives, those who were wounded and the first responders who risked their lives,” the Miami Beach Police Department announced. “We honor them throughout faithful commitment to peace. Giving your guns to God is a tangible way to become the peace we seek.”
The Community Church is the oldest church in Miami Beach.
