The Dallas-based energy sales company Stream Energy has made sure to give back to the community that has contributed to make their path in business such a success. Never before was this more evident than a year ago when Hurricane Harvey caused many Houston area neighborhoods to find themselves suddenly under water.
Stream sprung immediately into action, using proceeds from the business to be among the first organizations to help fund the recovery of the city of Houston and provide whatever relief possible for citizens affected by the storm.
The company recently launched ‘Stream Cares’ in an effort to organize and manage the aid the company plans to provide to the people of Texas and the country as a whole moving forward.
One particular causes that continue to be of particular interest to Stream Energy and its associates is the social plague of homelessness. Employees of the company have been known to track numbers and stats related to the homeless in Dallas and note that the city has seen a 24 percent rise in homelessness in recent years.
Stream Cares is expected to build on the relationship the company has already established with Hope Supply Co., a non-profit operating in Dallas that hosts an annual Splash For Hope event to benefit homeless children in the area. Stream and its employees recently covered the expenses for 1,000 children in the North Texas area to attend the Splash For Hope event that allows homeless children to enjoy themselves at a local waterpark.
Stream Cares also plans to provide support for Hope Supply Co. to continue their routine of donating school supplies, diapers, and clothing to homeless children in the area.
Stream Energy has also worked with Operation Once In A Lifetime to benefit U.S. service veterans and their families living in the Dallas area. The associate at Stream took a personal approach to this aid and wanted to meet the veteran they chose to help. The company and its associates provided transportation for these families to join them for lunch at a Texas-style restaurant that consisted of all the ribs, steaks, and burgers they could eat.
The company’s position on giving is summed up perfectly by senior event manager Kimberly Girard who explains that Stream Energy is a company with a heart and will continue to find new and creative ways to give back to the community.
