Merging Vets & Players Staff Retreat 

This last month, MVP staff gathered to participate in exercises, created by Wolf Tribe that focus on developing teamwork, trust, communication, and team culture.

Soldiers' Angels Food Distribution

Another successful food distribution is in the books! Maria, Chris, Erica and Kien spent 6 hours distributing food to over 210 veterans and their families. That equates to over 25,000 lbs of food!

The mission of True North, to make a positive contribution to the veteran community and inspire our peers to prioritize charitable actions, is more important than ever. The COVID-19 crisis has caused widespread uncertainty and stress, and for our nation's heroes recovering from physical injuries, seeking treatment for PTS, seeking meaningful employment, or simply providing for their families, this pandemic has exacerbated the challenges they already face. Physical distancing and social isolation have increased the need for support, and we remain committed to the partnerships that embody our True North.

As part of our mission, we strive to connect veterans and their families with the support they need. If you, or someone you know, seeks resources to help navigate the challenges of veteran transition, please let us know here.
