Many people lost their lives, homes, property, and even pets when Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston neighborhoods. Various companies just watched as it happened without taking any action but one company in Dallas, Stream Energy chose to make a change by assisting those who had been affected get access to basic needs as well as reduce their burden financially. Stream Energy is one of the leading energy providers and has made lots of profit from the business. Stream is involved in philanthropy efforts for more than a decade, and it recently founded its foundation called Stream Cares.
Streams decision to create a philanthropy arm has not only benefited the community but also earned Stream Energy more respect and trustworthiness from their potential customers. This step will help them stand firm in case of market instability and profit fall. Other than the corporation assisting Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity, its employees are involved in charitable activities in the grassroots. Through Hope Supply Co, Stream has been able to deal with homelessness in Dallas. At one point, Stream Energy paid for meal and entrance costs for more than 1000 destitute kids at the annual Splash for Hope. It also works with hope in donating school supplies, clothing and diapers for homeless children and has done it for the past four years.
In 2016 when there were tornadoes in North Texas, Stream responded fast in assisting those who lost their businesses and homes by raising funds for them. It worked with the Salvation Army to provide essential needs. Stream Energy also gives financial and moral provision to veterans in Dallas. In a statement she made, Kimberly Girard said that Stream is an organization that enjoys and prides itself in touching people’s lives. She added that they are always on the lookout for new and strategic techniques to give back to society.
