In a recent article on patch.com Dallas based company Stream Energy outlined their philanthropic efforts after the devastating hurricane, Harvey, that hit Houston in 2017. Harvey destroyed hundreds of homes and left people and pets homeless. There was one Dallas company that was not willing to stand by and leave these people in their greatest time of need. Stream Energy, a company that had made millions from its energy sales business, partnered with Home Supply Co. to help save those who were most affected. For Stream Energy these partnerships are nothing new, as they have worked with Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross before.
Philanthropic work has always been a part of what the company has been, and they give back to the community through more than just money.
While the energy giant is never involved in philanthropy for any sort of recognition, it does help foster respect and trust in the local communities. Local customers will already be familiar with what the company does as they supply both energy services and mobile phone plans.
One of the areas that the company has devoted much of its philanthropic work to is homelessness. In the Dallas area alone there are thousands of homeless people that need a variety of services.
At the annual Stream for Hope event, that allows children a respite from their troubles, Stream Energy payed for the entrance and food for 1000 children to the local water park. It is just a fraction of the help that Stream Energy gives with donations year-round to supply everything from diapers to school supplies. It is not just a help to the homeless. Stream employees find the experiences incredibly rewarding.
Another area Stream Energy gives generously to is the military, They donated both time and resources to military families in the Dallas area, and they are always trying to find new ways to help in their communities.
