Nothing like a day of pampering to help someone feel special! On Saturday, March 7th, our Future Professionals in our Phase Two Honors program and Be Nice team members hosted caregivers of disabled veterans for a day of complimentary services. The day was created as way to express gratitude towards these selfless individuals who spend their time caring for others through Operation Second Chance. Over $500 in services and products were contributed!

A follow-up presentation about the Operation Second Chance organization and how Future Professionals could volunteer shared by Vanessa Toner, Administrative Assistant for Operation Second Chance and was held on Wednesday, April 28th at THE TEMPLE.

Future Professional, Cam McClure: “I really enjoyed learning more about Operation Second Chance and being able to 

donate my time and talent!”

Trish Kaiser, a veteran who served in the Gulf War and is our Education Leader and Co-Director, led the day’s events and services. She stated, “Being a veteran myself, it is a joy to share with the Future Professionals just how much of a gift they are giving to caregivers and vets in need. It also teaches them about the sacrifice our vets have made for their freedom.”

Operation Second Chance supports wounded, injured and ill combat veterans (70% of whom are disabled) and their families while they recover in military hospitals, by building relationships and identifying and supporting immediate needs and interests. In addition, they are dedicated to promoting public awareness of the many sacrifices made by our Armed Forces.
