Hurricanes are a common phenomenon in the US. Some have proven to be fatal to people affected by them while others are mildly aggressive. Some of the hurricanes bring a lot of destruction and loss to the places they hit, like the Hurricane Harvey. There were floods in the Houston Metropolitan area which were the main cause for the heavy loss coming to an average of forty inches of rainfall in most of the affected areas.
Stream Energy, a Dallas-based company, helped to come to the rescue of the affected people and help recover some of the damage. Stream Energy believes in Corporate Philanthropy, something it has been doing for over a decade. Stream found a charity foundation called Stream Cares to help with their philanthropy from Texas and the rest of the country. This foundation not only supports the people in need of the help, but it also earns the company some respect in the process, which was something that happened during the Hurricane Harvey occurrence. Using this influence, Stream Energy has formed good working relations with Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. It has also found a relationship with its employees whereby selling energy directly, which is what the company does, helps Stream Energy build a loyal client-base and deliver products and services to its clients.
Stream Energy also relates closely with people who are homeless. The company and the employees occasionally track down the homeless living in Dallas alone. With the information they gathered, Stream partnered with Hope Supply Co. The two have helped cater for the entrance and meals of more than 1,000 homeless children from North Texas at Hope’s annual splash. In this yearly event, homeless children are taken to water parks and have fun, and Hope covers all their expenses.
Stream Energy has been involved in other charitable events such as the 2016 Texas tornado. They helped the affected with the help of Salvation Army, raising funds for helping the people. They’ve also helped military veterans, helped young girls meet and have lunch with their American Girl Idols. For Stream, philanthropy is just another day.
