Most companies are out to make a profit, and they don’t really consider how they can help people in the world. Stream Energy is a different kind of company that has elected to create a philanthropy arm. When Hurricane Harvey devastate much of Houston and Texas, Stream decided to step in and make a real difference. It did so by donating large sums of money to help people in the area recover from the damage that the hurricane had caused.
Stream Energy is an energy company that sells its energy directly to its customers. Stream Cares is the name of its charitable foundation, and the company has been helping people in Texas through its foundation for more than a decade. Stream is located in Dallas and has surprised people in the city and beyond by the way it has supported struggling individuals over the years. The company joins other American companies who continue to donate billions of dollars every year to help its fellow citizens and people from overseas.
Stream Energy has continued to work with the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity and also encourages its associates to do the same. Many of its associates have found success through the company’s commision-based sales model, and they are more than happy to give back to their community. Stream associates have focused a lot of their giving on the homeless issue in Dallas, which has become a real problem. In recent years, there has been close to a 25% jump in homelessness in the city.
Stream Energy continues to work with Hope Supply Co., which is a Dallas, Texas-based charitable organization that works to improve the plight of the homeless in the city. Recently, Stream Cares teamed up with the organization to cover the meal costs and entrance fees for more than 1,000 homeless kids who come from North Texas. This all went down at what is called “Splash For Hope,” which is a yearly get together that continues to be sponsored by Stream Energy and Hope Supply Co. Stream also works with the organization to give homeless kids clothing, diapers, and school supplies.
