I believe that people by nature try to be charitable and sometimes you hear about a certain cause or organization that sits close to the heart. When Taylor-Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales were approached by Operation Second Chance, we knew we needed to try to do something special. This is an organization that’s primary focus is committed to serving our wounded, injured, and ill combat Veterans. They give support to these Veterans and their families generally while they are recovering in military hospitals. Many of these men and women were injured oversees and have to come home to cope with the repercussions of their injuries and trying to readapt to life. Operation Second Chance sets up “Retreats” among various other activities to give these vets and their families a chance to get away to rest, relax, and reconnect with each other. Unless you know of someone that has been in a similar situation, most of us don’t think about how difficult it must be to return to “normal life”. When Frank, our Operation Second Chance contact, called looking for 2 homes that would comfortably host 2 Vets & their spouses for a mid-week getaway to Deep Creek Lake, Jodi began to make some calls. Almost immediately, 2 of our homeowners called and graciously and kindly donated their homes. Golden Retreat, a beautiful 3 bedroom lakefront home with a private dock, will make an excellent choice for one of the couples who have the need for a service learning dog since it is pet friendly. Wine Down, located in the prestigious Mountainside Community, is an immaculate 3 bedroom home that rests on the end of quiet road, the ideal place for a peaceful stay. It is with our sincere thanks to both of these homeowners for their thoughtful gift.
