BALTIMORE — In the wake of the recent violence in Cherry Hill, more than 100 men are doing their part to make a difference.

They walked around the community for two hours to spread resources such as job information, prayer, treatment programs and most importantly love.

Members of the Safe Streets program led the men during the walk and as time went on, more men, women and even children joined. They all had one goal, to stop the shootings.

"Many may question our timing because it's been some shootings out here, I would think this is exactly the time to come out here," said one individual. "This is the right time to come out here. Because we come out bringing love.”

Safe Streets is inviting anyone who wants to make a difference to join them this Saturday at the Church of the Redeemed of the Lord on Old York Road. They say all you have to do is show up.
