Dog Tag Capstone Projects
This month, CEO and founder, Greg Parsons had the opportunity to give back to veterans, military spouses, and caregivers by giving feedback with Dog Tag cohorts on their Capstone Projects.
Big Shot Challenge Sponsor
True North had the opportunity to sponsor a team for the Big Shot Challenge in VA. The event was able to raise awareness and funds for the American Veterans Center and the Young Marines.
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.
