In the interest of philanthropic causes, Stream Energy launched Stream Cares. The newly launched initiative will oversee the firm’s activities related to giving back to society, which has been part of the Dallas-based firm since its inception in 2005.
Looking back, Stream Energy has indeed made considerable strides in alleviating human suffering in Texas. The firm which started out a retail electricity company has never turned its back on the less fortunate or communities affected by disasters. Stream Energy’s responses during and after Hurricane Harvey and its philanthropic gestures towards the homeless and Dallas-area veterans are cases in point. What’s more, the company collaborates with like-minded organizations—such as the American Red Cross, Salvation Army—to create favorable synergies in attending to charitable causes.
Hurricane Harvey hit the Greater Houston in 2017, displacing thousands of residents and causing destructions running into hundreds of millions. Stream Energy immediately swung into action, aiding in healing and rebuilding the affected areas. The company, apart from contributing $25,000 to the American Red Cross, helped the organization to receive donations from well-wishers. The most notable gesture from the company, however, was directed to its clients in the affected areas; Stream Energy extended deadlines for payment of recent invoices.
As the number of homeless people continues to soar, Stream’s steadfast resolve is to contribute whatever little in its possession to brighten the lives of the homeless. The company in collaboration with Hope Supply Co. sponsors Splash for Hope. The program in its simplest form delivers a fun experience to the homeless children. The children are taken to local water parks, where they enjoy fun activities. They also are accorded monetary assistance and basic supplies.
Stream’s sphere of philanthropy extends to Dallas-area veterans and their children. Once in a while, the company, through its Operations Once in a Lifetime, treats the less fortunate veterans and their children to exclusive meals. Stream Energy even caters to their transportation costs. The company is interested in being involved in charitable causes beyond writing checks to donate money.
