Recently featured on Patch for its remarkable humanitarian services, Stream Energy, a direct-sales energy company, radiates the definition of philanthropy to its core.
According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, philanthropy is defined as “goodwill to fellow members of the human race; especially: active effort to promote human welfare. An act or gift done or made for humanitarian purposes. An organization distributing or supported by funds set aside for humanitarian purposes.”
Having built a business model encouraging giving back to the community from an individual employee level all the way up to corporate, Stream Energy has excelled in philanthropy by providing relief to those experiencing hardships for over a dozen years. Recently Stream Energy formed its Stream Cares Foundation, a charity program created to reach even further in assisting those in need.
After the devastation Hurricane Harvey left to the people of Houston, Texas and surrounding areas in 2017, Dallas based Stream Cares was among the first to jump into action and fund recovery operations for those whom were displaced. Stream Energy also used its resources during this difficult time to lessen the financial burden of its own customers affected by these horrendous storms.
A company wide passion to alleviate the hardship of homelessness has also lead Stream Energy to partner with the Hope Supply Co. This partnership allowed Stream Cares and its employees to provide entrance fees and meal costs for over 1,000 homeless children of the Northern Texas area at the Annual Splash for Hope Event. Hope Supply Co. gives diapers, clothing, school supplies, and more to children in need. For the last four years Stream Cares has worked closely with Hope Supply Co. in meeting these needs.
Stream Cares provided aid to the victims of several Tornadoes that touched down throughout Texas the day after Christmas of 2016. They have provided support to veterans of the Texas area. Hosted events to meet, on a personal level, those whom need their services most.
Philanthropy is not just another word in the dictionary for this company. From the ground up, Philanthropy is the very essence of Stream Energy’s soul.
