May was a busy month for True North and our partners, but we are all excited to see what the summer holds. With more states opening up comes more opportunities to engage with the veteran community.

Dog Tag Inc Capstone
This last month, Greg Parsons volunteered for Dog Tag Inc.'s Capstone Projects. He not only got to hear some great entrepreneurial ideas, but he also got to meet some amazing veterans and spouses as well.
Riley Gregoire, Community Engagement Director for Semper Capital Management L.P., got the opportunity to volunteer with Growing Veterans, a local veteran non-profit in Lyden, WA. She planted flowers and helped create a watering system.
MCSF Boston Golf Tournament

Suit Donations to "Save a Suit"
Semper and CAVU employees are donating suits and business attire to Save A Suit, a veteran non-profit that provides suits to veterans looking to re-enter the civilian workforce after their time in service.
BLOG: Unspoken Heroes of our Military Families
True North is hoping to bring awareness to the strength and courage military spouses exude as they overcome the challenges of being part of a military family. This article highlights only a few of the hardships many spouses face during their loved one’s time in service.
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.
