BLOG: TRUE NORTH HEROES SPOTLIGHT: An Interview with Margo Cianchetta
Twenty years ago, Margarita “Margo” Cianchetta was able to attend college thanks to a scholarship from the Marine Corps Scholarship Foundation. Today, she’s helping other young people achieve their dream of attending college by working for the very same foundation.
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.
