Pastor Shaquila “Shaq” Matthews, of Truth & Life Community Church, said the Street Rescue event in Hamilton is “personal.”
“My family has personally been effected by gun violence as my brother was murdered and his case is still unsolved,” she said. “If through my family’s tragedy I can save other families from this pain, it is worth every effort to make this partnership continue to happen, additionally I hope this effort as a part of my community is one more part of the plan to rid it of the gun violence and the pain that community guns bring.”
