Giving Back through META: Making Education the Answer
Through his work with META, Cisco Pinedo acknowledges the support he has received in the past by giving back to the community and making visible the plight of Hispanic youth to achieve a higher education.
Since a very young age, Cisco has chosen to participate in a positive way in the communities he is part of. He wants to make sure that he is contributing in a bigger way than just making furniture. Cisco has always been involved and present in his community, not only in his own business but also in the way he gives back to the people who need it most.
It’s a story of a single, pink sofa. And what started as a mother working for free to support her son’s dream, a brother working part-time, and a wife tirelessly supporting her husband after clocking out from her own job would soon become a growing family, the Cisco Family.
Cisco offers the peace of mind that the furniture you own is not only the best looking and feeling, but the absolute best you can get for your health and the comfort of your home.
