At the special Voices of Los Alamos meeting March 12, Pastor Steve Trout with the First United Methodist Church announced an upcoming prayer walk/gun turn-in event.

The event is scheduled for 9 a.m. Saturday, March 24 at the First United Methodist Church at 715 Diamond Dr.

The guns will be collected by the nonprofit group New Mexicans to Prevent Gun Violence, which will destroy the firearms onsite.

The pieces of the guns will be sent to the Guns to Gardens program where they will be turned into garden tools.

“We really want to make a difference for our children,” Trout said.
