Support Second Chances Garage

Our supporters are what keep us able to serve the Frederick County community. Without the contributions through cars, money, and time, we would not be able to continue carrying out our mission. No matter if you are a company or an individual, we have several ways that you can support Second Chances Garage. Click the icons below to learn how.

purchase A Car

Car sales to the general public are the lifeline of our business as they help us keep program costs down for those in need. The monies received from car sales are used to repair cars so that they can be placed with low-income individuals and families. We have a variety of cars on our lot and they tend to sell quickly. We encourage you to visit our lot or view our inventory and call to varify if the car is still available.

Donate Funds

Monetary donations are graciously accepted as they directly benefit Second Chances Garage. Donated funds can be used for a variety of needs including, but not limited to, repairs, operating expenses, parts, tools, and fundraising events. 

donate a car

Our primary mission is to provide safe and reliable cars to low-income families in Frederick County. Donated cars are potentially provided to an applicant who is vetted by one of our Partner Agencies after being thoroughly evaluated and detailed. Donors also receive a tax benefit regardless of the condition of the car.

Organize a Fundraiser

While we have fundraisers of our own, we love it when others organize a fundraiser to benefit Second Chances Garage! We thank you for putting in the time to help us make a bigger impact and encourage you to share any pictures you have on social media. Please tag us and use #CreatingSecondChances

Our Community Partners help us in a variety of ways, including providing resources to use in our repair shop, helping us with outsourced repairs that we are unable to perform, providing donations to support our programs, helping to spread the word, and more.

Businesses also have the opportunity to have employees donate through voluntary payroll deductions.
