Three $10,000 scholarship checks were presented to Saint Peter’s University, Hudson Country Community College and New Jersey City University. Eugene J. Cornacchia, Ph.D. – President of Saint Peter’s University, Joseph Sansone – Vice President of Development of Hudson County Community College Foundation and Sue Henderson, Ph.D. – President of New Jersey City University were present to accept the scholarship funds. Two students at each of the institutions will be recipients of a $5,000 scholarship check.

The CarePoint Health Foundation, along with the Attorney General’s Office and Division of Criminal Justice, co-sponsored a Human Trafficking Awareness Seminar at Saint Peter’s University in November 2013.  This statewide seminar covered by major media outlets was attended by over 400 individuals including community organizations, law enforcement, and several educational sectors throughout the state.

CarePoint Health Foundation made donations to local charities. A $25,000 donation was made to the United Way of Hudson County to aid local victims of Hurricane Sandy.  Hope House, an emergency shelter for women with children located in downtown Jersey City, was the recipient of a $5,000 donation of household items and gifts.
