FREDERICK, MD – With a passion for cars and helping those in need, a small non profit organization known as the Second Chances Garage seeks to make a difference in Frederick. People in Need Get a Car Through Non-Profit

“We found that there were a lot of people in Frederick that didn’t have transportation, and so we wanted to find a way to get people into a car that couldn’t otherwise afford it,” says Rick Trawick, the executive director and volunteer of Second Chances Garage.

The Second Chances Garage takes any vehicle as a donation. They refurbish,  detail, and put the vehicle through Maryland safety inspections before the car is given to those in need.

“I have two daughters and it helps, the car helps get them to appointments, it helps me get to appointments, it helps me get to church on Sunday, it helps me get to work throughout the week. It helped me with a lot of things, and in many areas,” says Riyan Williams.

Since April of 2010, the Second Chances Garage has given away twelve cars, and helped many people with their low cost auto repair.

“Its an opportunity for me to serve the community. There’s a lot of people in the area that aren’t able to afford the typical repair bills that their going to see at the local garages and dealerships, so it’s a chance to give back and help,” says Carl Reggio, a volunteer at Second Chances garage.

They also help their clients budget for their new car, making sure they understand and prepare for the costs that comes with the gift.
