In Dallas Texas, Stream Energy comes to the rescue after Hurricane Harvey, partnering with Hope Supply company and much, more. The efforts of the Stream Energy company have delivered effective and much-needed philanthropy. Not only did they relieve the discomforts and homelessness of their customers, they performed a full-on community outreach on many levels. They were featured in the Patch.com blog that talked about Stream Cares which is the Stream Energy corporate philanthropy project.
What is corporate Philanthropy?
In the case of Stream Energy, they developed a corporate strategy geared towards philanthropy. Stream Cares, is a division of that company that uses all appropriate resources to assist their customers in unusual ways. However, philanthropic endeavors by a local company will typically reach out to the community at large. They can do this in the case of an emergency as Stream Energy did with Hurricane Harvey in Dallas Texas or, they can choose a specific area of detriment and or neglect in their home town such as homelessness. In this case, Energy Stream did both.
What Energy Stream Does
They provide direct energy selling and mobile services. They pay their people to build a strong, local unity and trust between the community and the company. For over 4 years, Stream Energy with Stream Cares has worked in tandem with Hope Supply Company to bring the much needed things that homeless kids and parents need. This includes money but is not limited to it. They deliver diapers, clothing and school supplies to families in need. They also deliver experiences like a water park for kids and parents that are displaced or homeless as a fundraiser for the cause.
These acts are a part of a heart-based mission undertaken by Stream . They believe it develops a strong relationship with the community. In 2016, tornado’s ripped through Northern Texas and left people instantly homeless. The company, along with the Salvation Army matched the donations brought in by their associates and doubled them. This company also works to help veterans that are unemployed, homeless or displaced.
There’s no end to what this company had done to give back to the community and it’s expected that they’ll be more to come.
