When hurricane Harvey hit Houston, many Americans died while others were left homeless. Unfortunately, the corporate society, however, remained blind to this situation.
Stream Energy, a direct energy sales company in Dallas, used its energy-sales proceeds to finance the recovery and alleviate the financial burden from its Houston clients. The company launched Stream Care foundation to formally engage in charitable deeds across Texas.
Stream highly regards corporate social responsibility, its involvement in the Houston restoration project is a demonstration how companies across Texas leverage philanthropic deeds to bolster their brand visibility by providing more than just financial assistance.
Having a philanthropic division is a new approach that companies have adopted. It’s a highly publicized phenomenon but has its advantages. Stream helps the community in times of distress while earning the loyalty and good public image from clients. To a C-level manager, it offers the company an upper hand when scandals arise, profits plummet and challenging lead off times.
It Takes Combined Effort to Succeed
In its efforts to aid the less fortunate, Stream Energy joined efforts with Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. Collectively, the trio has dedicated staff and executive who oversee philanthropic activities on the grassroots level.
One major concern for Stream Energy is homelessness in Dallas. The firm and its employees track the number of homeless Dallas residents and the current 24% surge in homelessness is a huge reason to give back.
Hope Supply, a Dallas-based company, is Stream’s passion project. This partnership covered entrance and meal expenses for over 1000 homeless kids in North Texas in the yearly Splash for Hope event.
The occasion brings together destitute children to a local park where Stream Energy’s staffs and executives share happy times with the children. The company also gives financial assistance and extra supplies. Occasionally, Hope Supply Co. gives out diapers, stationery, and clothing to this charitable course.
Stream’s Partners Delighted to Meet those they Serve
