Stream Energy, a Dallas based energy sales company, helped those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Stream has a strong focus on corporate philanthropy with over ten years of experience. Stream Energy launched, “Stream Cares”, to increase their philanthropy efforts across Texas. They work to do more than just give money.
Businesses gave charities about $19 billion in 2016, but individual employee’s efforts are not included in those statistics. Stream Energy has worked with the Red Cross and the Habitat for Humanity. Stream’s business model uses direct energy selling to pay its associates to provide products and services. Stream also offers services like discounted clean energy, telemedicine, and virtual doctors. Associates’ sales earn them commission, and they choose causes to support individually.
Ending homelessness is very important to stream’s associates. They and the company keep track of the number of homeless people in Dallas. The city has seen homelessness increase by 24%. Stream has worked and partnered with Hope Supply Co. to help more than 1,000 homeless children get meals at Splash for Hope. The event allows the children to go to a water park for free. Clothing, diapers, and school supplies are provided by Hope Supply Co.
In 2016, Stream worked with the Salvation Army to help victims of tornados right after Christmas. Associates gave thousands of dollars to people who lost businesses and homes. The company Stream doubled the donations. Stream helped veterans through financial and moral support in conjunction with Operation Once in a Lifetime. Transportation was donated to veterans to get them to a December lunch at a Texas restaurant. The American Girl Doll Experience took place the next day. 10 young daughters of veterans were allowed to pick an American Doll and go to lunch at the American Girl Cafe. Stream covered all the expenses.
Stream Energy is continually using associate passion and corporate generosity to help those in need.
