The philanthropy efforts that companies make impact millions of people around the world. Stream Energy takes their company’s causes very seriously which is why they created Stream Cares to organize all of their many efforts across Texas. When Hurricane Harvey hit Texas, they immediately stood up to help those who had been impacted by the storm. On Houston, Hurricane Harvey left Houston neighborhoods soaked in up to 56″ of rain that displaced families across the state.
While there were many companies that came out with their support, the efforts that the Dallas-based company Stream Energy made to help stood out. Many of the people who were impacted by Hurricane Harvey were also customers of Stream and they ensured them that they did not have to worry about their energy bill. Even though many people were left without the ability to pay, their power still stayed on throughout these neighborhoods in Texas who were left devastated.
In addition to helping their customers with their energy bill, Stream Energy also provided a considerable amount of funding for the recovery efforts being made. While providing money for the recovery had a deep impact, many members of the team at Stream went to these affected areas and physically helped with the cleanup and rebuilding of homes and neighborhoods. Caring for their communities is something that is part of the makeup of the company and their staff.
After Hurricane Harvey, Stream Energy was inspired to make their philanthropy more formalized with the Stream Cares Foundation so they can make a bigger impact on people in need. They are giving back more than just money to their communities and philanthropy has become a huge part of their brand overall. Philanthropy is something that they have been taking part in for more than 12 years.
Some of the organizations in which Stream Energy continues to work with include the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. There has been a huge increase in the rate of homelessness throughout Texas and especially in and around bigger cities. Their team cares deeply about helping with this problem and volunteer frequently.
