Everyone from Dallas and other places in Houston will remember Hurricane Harvey. The hurricane is one of the most powerful and most devastating hurricanes that landed in the area because of the massive floodings that happened. With a lot of properties damaged and a lot of families left homeless, Stream Energy took it into their own hands to help the people of Dallas.
Stream Energy is one of the many corporate entities that partook in help to rebuild the area. By launching its philanthropic arm, “Stream Cares”, the electric generating company by donating to local charities with their own funds. This is to adhere to their brand rules that philanthropic works are essential to their brand. In order to give back to its community as well as to gain respect and loyalty, Stream helps to rebuild the community of their customers.
Even though the Stream Cares Charity Foundation was just launched recently after the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, Stream Energy has been doing philanthropic works in more than a decade already. One of its long-term partnerships involves the American Red Cross. The two organizations have been helping in protecting and saving human lives around the country.
In addition, Stream Energy is also a partner of Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization that provides houses and helps homeless people find shelters. Homeless cases are one of Stream’s biggest concern because of its alarming rate of increase, even in Dallas alone. The homelessness rate increased by 24% in the past years. In order to help the homeless people, Stream formed a partnership with a Dallas-based company called the Hope Supply Co.
By launching the Splash For Hope project, Stream and Hope Supply manages to give homeless children a trip to a local water park, as well as financial support. Hope Supply provides clothing, school supplies, diapers, and other supplies to homeless children. This initiative with Stream has been going on for more than four years.
In addition to the help that Stream give for homeless people, the company also provides financial and emotional support for the veterans of the war. In addition to this, Stream also provided a free lunch in a known Texas restaurant to meet the recipients and their loved ones. Kimberly Girard, Stream’s senior event manager, states that the company enjoys changing the lives of so many people.
