Legal & General America gives $35,000 to Second Chances Garage (MD)


Recommended Posts

Legal & General America, a life insurance company with an office in Frederick, recently raised hundreds of thousands of dollars through its annual Charitable Giving Campaign and will be donating about $35,000 to Second Chances Garage.


Second Chances Garage is a charity organization in Frederick that provides affordable, reliable transportation—through car donations— to individuals and families in need.


“We think it’s spectacular that Legal & General America think so much of Second Chances Garage,” said John Frawley, chairman of Second Chances Garage Board of Directors. “With those kind of funds we’ll be able to place many more cars, which goes with our mission to help low-income people in Frederick County with personal transportation.”


In 2018, Second Chances worked on 812 cars owned by low-income individuals in Frederick, according to Frawley. It placed 39 vehicles with families that didn’t have transportation and 281 cars were donated to the non-profit, the highest it received in one year.


“I would like to thank Legal & General America for selecting us as a featured charity for its annual campaign,” said Rick Trawick founder of Second Chances Garage, in a news release. “LGA’s great employee support will allow us to replace our aging tow truck with a newer model. As you may imagine, a reliable tow truck is a key component essential for collecting our donations. We are very thankful that LGA is located in Frederick County and for its generous support of our community.”


Through its charity campaign, Legal & General America raised more than $950,000 from Oct. 19 and Nov. 2. Funds will be donated to hundred of charities including the two featured charities—Second Chances Garage and America’s VetDogs, a company that provides service dogs to veterans, active duty service members and first responders with disabilities.


“It’s incredible to see what can be accomplished through the combined generosity of our employees and the support of our local Frederick community,” said Mark Holweger, president and CEO of Legal and General America’s insurance division. “We’ve been blessed with a team and a community that cares about others and about the missions and values of charities here in Frederick and across the U.S. We’re proud to stand by organizations like Second Chances Garage and America’s VetDogs and help them, in some way, reach the goals they’ve set out to achieve.”
