When a business actually takes an interest in helping the general public throughout all crisis, and does it well, it’s worth taking note. Enter, Stream Energy, a direct selling and connected live services company that has made the short list since 2005. Texas, a state hardest hit by Hurricane Harvey, saw a new development emerge help the community of Houston and surrounding cities in amazing ways. According to an article on Patch.com, Stream Energy launched a charity foundation called “Stream Cares” to better display the company’s philanthropic desires beyond monetary donations. The relationships developed between Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross allowed Stream Cares to use the revenue to pay it forward, encouraging associates to build a network of clients and provide residential and corporate services in return.
One such partnership that is particularly outstanding among the homeless comes through Hope Supply Co., as they hold an annual event that helps provide thousands of North Texan children with meals, money and basic supplies. Another instance in 2016 saw Stream Cares work closely with the Salvation Army to belay the cost of damages incurred by devastating tornadoes that destroyed local homes and businesses. Using their direct sales, the company was able to match the amount of donations brought in by their associates and double the pool.
A particularly touching event while partnered with Operation Once in a Lifetime really displayed the human-to-human effort Stream Energy strives hard to convey towards the public. Veterans of the Dallas area and their families received both moral and financial support via donated transportation to those unable to travel to gather for a true Texan lunch of ribs, burgers, steaks and the fixings at a designated restaurant. Soon after, Stream Energy co-hosted an event with the American Girl Doll Experience; allowing ten young girls of military families to receive an American Girl Doll of their choice and lunch at the American Girl Cafe, all expenses paid. For a state that proudly flies its Lone Star flag, companies like Stream Energy proudly do their best to make sure that Lone Star never truly flies alone.
When tragedy strikes in Texas and around the country, Stream Energy is consistently one of the first on the scene. The act of giving and corporate passion for those hit with circumstances beyond their control starts at the top.
“Operation Once in a Lifetime” was a magnificent triumph carried out by Stream Cares. Dallas Veterans and their families were treated to a lunch of ribs, burgers, steaks with all the fixins. Steam Cares paid for the transportation of the families to the occasion. Stream Energy endeavors to be involved, not just write a check.
The next day “American Girl Doll Experience.” was hosted by Stream. Ten daughters of military families were given an American Girl doll. Later they all had lunch at the American Girl Café with Stream Cares paying for the event.
Stream Energy is a highly successful, direct to consumer energy company. Fundamental beliefs at the business are employee participation for the underprivileged of the community. Stream Energy has built meaningful relationships with Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross. Both management and workers fuel a grassroots effort to give back to the communities.
Stream Cares is profoundly concerned with the rising homeless population in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metro area. Employees at Stream routinely check the number of displaced citizens in Dallas. An alarming twenty four percent increase in the number of people adrift is a powerful catalyst for giving.
Hope Supply Company and Stream Cares have partnered to help tackle the problem of homelessness. “Splash for Hope” delivered an experience of a lifetime. Employees of Stream and their associates purchased meal costs for over a thousand homeless children. The event, held at a local water park, allowed all those concerned to contribute money and supplies. Hope Supply consistently provides the necessities of life to the homeless in the Dallas area. Stream Energy has worked with this exceptional company for over four years.
Stream Cares routinely responds to devastating tragedies that strike Texas. Stream was one of the first to fund recovery efforts after Hurricane Harvey hit in August of 2017. Again, Stream Cares was on the scene, helping in the aftermath of destructive tornadoes in 2016.
