What We've Been Up To
Stay In Step Gala
Stay In Step had its annual Gala this last month and it was a great success. With the Gala being the anchor revenue source for the center, the event raised over $150,000
MCSF Cocktail Party
True North hosted a Cocktail Party to celebrate our partnership with the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. It was a great night of networking for veteran causes.
Soldiers Angels' Food Distribution

Dog Tag Resume Building Workshop
As part of their fellowship program, Dog Tag hosts resume-building workshops. For cohort 14, two wonderful CAVU employees, Stuart Patterson and Peter Thompson volunteered their time to help cohorts with their resumes.
BLOG: Always Remember
True North decided to reach out to Chris Vetzel, Story Coach and Program Coordinator with The Heroes Journey as well as a post 9/11 veteran, to ask him about his thoughts on the 20th anniversary of 9/11. This is what he wrote back to us
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.
