Stream Energy is so committed to its charity work that it has set up its own philanthropic section called Stream Cares. The company has been involved with its charitable work for over twelve years, but it now officially has a part of the company devoted solely to its philanthropy.
Stream Energy saw firsthand the destruction brought about by Hurricane Harvey and the effect it had on the entire community. More importantly, Stream Energy saw how it affected some of its customers. It felt a duty to give back to its own community. Stream Energy has been highly successful selling energy to its affiliates, and it is using that revenue to help with a variety of causes.
In the past it has worked with international charities like the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity, but its latest partnership is with a fellow Dallas-based charity called Hope Supply Co. Both organizations will focus on the issue of homelessness around the Dallas area. The problem has only become worse over the last few years, and it has an enormous effect on children. Hope Supply Co already supplies food, clothing, and school supplies to local children, and Stream Cares has recently organized a series of events for the victims of homelessness.
Stream Cares took a group of children to a local water park. It was a treat for the children. Many of them had never been on a trip like it. It was also a chance for the employees of Stream Energy to show their support for the children and the community as a whole. While it is important for companies like Stream Energy to donate money, it is also important for the company to donate its time. It is something the employees are more than happy to do.
It was not the only event. Recently the company had lunches for veterans and their families. It is all part of the commitment from Stream Cares to support the communities in which it works.
