Stream Energy : Leader In Community OutreachFebruary 27, 2019 - Author: steph
When the people of Houston, Texas where overcome by the destruction of Hurricane Harvey many of these folks had to watch from afar as their homes and businesses were destroyed by the devastating floods and winds of the storm. However, one company was ready and willing to step up to help the community the minute they were allowed to enter these areas. Stream Energy, a Texas-based energy provider used much of their funds to provide those in need with the necessary aid to keep them fed, warm and sheltered.
The move was done in conjunction with Stream Energy’s philanthropic branch of the company name “Stream Cares”. The foundation itself is a phenomenon in the business world as it is one of the few of its kind to exist. Although corporate America receives a bad reputation in terms of charitable donations, one only needs to look at 2016 when an estimated $19 billion was donated by corporations across the country. Stream Energy, however, goes above and beyond when dealing with these efforts. Philanthropy is in the DNA of the company, so much so that many of Stream’s employees take part in charitable projects across the state.
For example, Dallas-based Stream Energy employees have been known to be very passionate about taking care of the homeless in their community, particularly homeless children. Every year, Stream along with Hope Supply Co. will fundraise to purchase over a thousand waterpark tickets for the homeless children of the city. The project not only provides these children with necessary items such as food and new clothes but a chance to experience a day without stress, simply said, a day to be a kid.
One of the advantages that Stream energy has over its competition when it comes to their philanthropic efforts is the business model itself. New associates are tasked with formulating networking groups across their city in an effort to offer Stream’s energy plans. This, in turn, creates a strong relationship with customers where the company is able to have a face in the form of their employees.
