A Different Kind Of Second Chance



This is something that is good for everyone.

I have decided to be the spokesperson for Second Chance announcing on my radio show each week when talking to someone who is moving, right-sizing or remodeling...suggesting they donate to Second Chance. They can also purchase everything for their new home at the same time.

This box is running in my weekly ads to share this wonderful place with buyers and sellers.


2nd chance Margaret Rome


Second Chance is a 501(c) nonprofit that gives a second chance to materials, people and the environment. 

Instead of demolition, this wonderful company deconstructs homes and buildings... salvaging the usable items.

The items are made available, to the public, in  200,000 square feet of retail space.

The reclaimed materials along with other donated items are offered at a discount. Each piece has a price and dates with future reductions.

These revenues then give "green collar jobs" to those that face obstacles to employment.

Second Chance believes people matter more than profits.

Located near the stadiums at 1700 Ridgely Street 21230


Second Chance is open 7 days a week and the inventory is constantly changing.


Good name-Second Chance


Margaret Rome

Thanks, Sally K. & David L. Hanson for the contest.
