Stream Energy is a dallas-based business, company, and corporation that involves itself and its employees in many different philanthropy projects. Stream Energy’s most recent and notable philanthropic effort was after Hurricane Harvey struck and poured over 56 inches of rain in the Houston area.
Stream Energy used financial earnings from its successful energy sales business and company to be one of the first to fund recovery efforts, as well as attempt to ease the financial burdens of its own consumers. For Stream Energy, corporate philanthropy is part of the company’s DNA from the ground up. The energy company recently started its charity foundation, “Stream Cares”, to formalize its ongoing community efforts throughout Texas and all over the United States.
Releasing a philanthropy arm as a business or corporation is generally a new phenomenon in the 21st century. Doing so offers dual advantages for businesses and companies. The company gets to give back to the community, while earning the respect and long-term loyalty of current and potential customers along with the public.
For Stream Energy–which has built long-term ethical and philanthropic relationships with Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross– employees and corporate leaders also participate in local giving. The company’s employees and associates give back to their communities in multiple ways–homelessness, especially in Dallas– being one they care very deeply about. Stream Energy played a unique role helping battle homelessness in the Dallas area. Partnering up with Hope Supply Co., Stream and its associates covered park entrance and meals of 1,000 plus North Texas homeless children at the annual Splash For Hope.
This event brings homeless children– many for their first time– to a local waterpark. This philanthropic event allows Steam Energy and its employees and associates to supply an experience of a lifetime, as well as provide money and supplies.
Another example of Stream’s local philanthropic efforts would be back in 2016 when Stream quickly and efficiently responded to aid Texas tornado victims in 2016. Working closely with the Salvation Army, Stream and its associates raised over one-thousand dollars for those in North Texas who lost their homes and businesses to the 2016 tornado.
