Operation Second Chance Ribbon-Cutting in Germantown (Photo)
The Gaithersburg-Germantown Chamber of Commerce (GGCC) recently conducted a ribbon-cutting and grand opening ceremony for Operation Second Chance’s new location at 20251 Century Boulevard, Suite 130, in Germantown.
A top rated nonprofit, Operation Second Chance supports wounded service members returning from Iraq and Afghanistan and helps these veterans transition back to duty and to civilian life.

Operation Second Chance began in 2004 when President and Founder Cindy McGrew learned of three soldiers that were injured and en route to Walter Reed Army Medical Center. She immediately sent emails to the families to offer her support and assistance. From that day, life long bonds and friendship have developed. Over the years, Operation Second Chance has grown. This simple mission became something much larger than they imagined.
This ribbon-cutting ceremony was unlike any other, as it was a community of GGCC members coming together for this great cause. Tom Plant, Managing Partner for Paul Davis Restoration and Remodeling, heard that McGrew’s organization needed a home and he helped them do so by reaching out to Matan Companies.
Matan gave up an office inside their Century Boulevard suite to McGrew. Just recently, Matan decided to donate an entire suite (across the hall from where they were) to Operation Second Chance. Paul Davis then donated its services to spruce up the suite.
Additionally, chamber members My Realty Team & Metropolitan Ballet Theater have also recently made partnerships with Operation Second Chance offering their expertise and services.
