“Second Chance, Inc., is a nonprofit corporation that sells reclaimed building materials, which fund job training and employment of Baltimore City residents who may have difficulties finding a job. Salvaged items in various categories are displayed in a 200,000 sq. ft. warehouse. Were it not for crews that carefully recover vendibles, many valuable materials, like lumber, vintage fixtures and appliances, might have ended up in an incinerator or a landfill.” Enjoy these 17 images and captions.
