Dallas-based energy provider Stream Energy was one of the first companies to lend aid after Hurricane Harvey. It provided funds in support of affected, aiding them in relief efforts, and minimizing the financial toll. In 2016, Stream Energy responded quickly to the damage a number of Tornadoes wrought in North Texas. The company, in association with the Salvation Army, raised thousands in funds to aid affected families. Stream even went further and doubled the contributions made. Presently, it is engaging in long-standing efforts to curb homelessness in Texas. It has funded numerous events to provide food and clothing for homeless children. Stream Energy has always been serious about its philanthropy, but now it has kicked it up a gear with Stream Cares.
Stream Cares is an independent entity created within Stream to handle is philanthropic pursuits. The goal behind Stream Cares is to manage Stream’s ongoing charity. Stream Cares plans events, coordinates with other organizations, keeps relationships up with said organizations, and manages the outgoing contributions Stream makes to charity.
Since its founding in 2005, the direct-seller energy provider has given back to the community. In its tenure it has enjoyed much success, expanding out of Texas to offer energy services in six other states. It has also expanded its abilities to include mobile service and even home security. As a mobile provider Stream has a national reach, but its energy services have yet to expand further.
Philanthropy has always been a part of Stream’s business model, with both founders and executives seeing it as important. Stream Cares is the company’s effort to further legitimize that model by making charity a working part of the business. Right now, Stream Cares is partnering with Hope Supply Company to provide food and clothing for homeless children. This aforementioned outreach is at the heart of Stream’s philanthropy. A longtime partner of both Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross, Stream Energy has worked tirelessly to provide relief for those without.
