2020 National Presenting Sponsor
Delta Air Lines is proud to be a long-time partner of Covenant House, making a deep impact in the lives of children and youth facing homelessness and human trafficking.
Each year, dozens of Delta Air Line employees Sleep Out in cities across the country. In 2019, the airline hosted a Sleep Out at its Atlanta headquarters. A handful of New York-based employees who couldn’t make it to Atlanta even held their own Sleep Out at JFK International Airport.
In addition to sponsoring the Sleep Out movement, Delta Air Lines created a Career Readiness program for Covenant House youth in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Mexico City, and New York. Led completely by Delta Air Lines employees, the program equips youth overcoming homelessness with the tools and skills they need for a successful career at Delta and elsewhere.

2020 Top Fundraising Global Team
Cisco employees have been a force for good in the Sleep Out movement since 2014, raising more than $6 million to support youth overcoming homelessness over the past seven years.
Team Cisco is a true grassroots effort, made up of nearly 700 employees in 20+ cities around the world. Cisco's enthusiasm is contagious, inspiring other companies to form their own teams and even hosting a Sleep Out at their headquarters in San Jose, California.
In 2020, as the world faced a global pandemic, Team Cisco doubled down on their commitment to end youth homelessness and recruited their largest Sleep Out team to-date, leading international participation with employees giving up their beds for the night in 20 different countries.
In fact, it was Cisco who leapt into action as the world went into lockdown. Covenant House's first virtual Sleep Out went live using Cisco's Webex technology, and we continued to rely on their software and expertise to bring people together for intimate conversations in interactive breakout sessions.
Beyond the Sleep Out, Cisco employees have worked with front-line staff at Covenant House to ensure that our shelters are equipped with the technology and resources that young people need to be successful in a virtual world.
