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
Vehicles that do not meet the standards to be used in our program are sold to the general public. The proceeds help us continue our Reduced-Cost Repair and Low-Cost Vehicle Programs for those in need. Anyone may purchase these public sale vehicles because there are no requirements nor application process. You’ll support our programs and mission!
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.
