The Church of the Holy Cross, the Episcopal Diocese of Pittsburgh and the community collected $5,100 for a gun buyback program. Holy Cross is a historically African American parish in the Homewood neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Planned as a day long event, before running out of money the church collected around 150 guns in under an hour.

The coalition of the church, diocese and community is akin to the medical debt buyback and forgiveness in Alabama.
