I have chosen OPERATION SECOND CHANCE as my project. Their mission: A dedicated group of patriotic citizens committed to serving our wounded, injured and ill combat veterans. We support Veterans and their families by building relationships and identifying and supporting the immediate needs and interests while promoting public awareness of the many sacrifices made by our Armed Forces. Veterans are supported from meals, cookouts and entertainment to morale building retreats and financial assistance for individual wounded soldier’s expenses including utilities, mortgage payments, medical equipment, grocery gift cards, clothing, travel and car repairs. Operation Second Chance began in 2004 with the kindness of Cindy McGrew, CEO and Founder. Cindy came to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center giving her support to seven injured soldiers and their families. Operation Second Chance has now provided over $9 million worth of assistance and support because of the generosity of the Americans these heroes protect.
