Every day amazing companies are finding new and innovative ways to collaborate with Covenant House to change the lives of homeless youth.
Samsung Electronics America President & CEO, Tim Baxter, recently shared his Executive Sleep Out experience. Tim noted, "...I am thankful for so many blessings in this life – the roof over my head, my family, friends, my company and colleagues at Samsung. This year, it includes the “Sleep Out” experience I was able to be a part of once again, knowing just how impactful the $514,000 raised through this one night will be for the next troubled youth that finds Covenant House." Many thanks to Tim and the Samsung team for their continued support!!!

NEW YORK RED BULLS
The New York Red Bulls are one of 20 teams that comprise Major League Soccer and are located in the nearby town of Harrison, NJ. They have partnered with CHNJ in a variety of ways over the last two years including providing our youth with jobs at Red Bull Arena as well as tickets to Red Bull matches.
More notable, in each of the last two years they have hosted two significant events:
- A BBQ for our youth and staff here at our crisis center in Newark.
- In conjunction with Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of NJ, Sleep Out: Red Bull Edition. The Sleep Out is part of our nationwide movement to raise awareness of homelessness along with much needed funds to support our work by "Sleeping Out so Homeless Youth Don't Have to". Held at Red Bull Arena, a 25,000-seat soccer-specific stadium in Harrison, NJ, the event has raised roughly $170,000 over two years to support our work.
