In times of disaster, many companies step-up to help, however, for Stream Energy, philanthropy is part of their daily business. After the rain finally stopped, Stream Energy was one of the first corporations to use their own money to fund the recovery effort. They also reached out to their customers and helped to provide them assistance.
It is not a new concept that a corporation reaches out to their community in a time of need, but it is new for a company to create their own charity. Stream Energy not only reaches out in times of need, but they are involved in their community year around. They have a strong relationship with many of the local charities that include the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. The employees each have charities that are close to their heart and they spend their own time helping when they can.
Homelessness is a big problem in Dallas and one problem that the employees of Stream Energy are working hard to end. Steam works with an organization called Hope Supply Co. Hope Supply Co. supplies necessities such as diapers, clothes, and more to homeless children. Stream has worked with the organization for many years and recently sponsored a fun event for the children. Stream took the kids to spend the day at the water park. Not only did they cover admission fees, but for food too. For many of the children, this was the first time at a water park.
For the employees at Stream, it is not always about the big press events. It is about everyday events too. It is about picking up veterans and their families and taking them to enjoy a dinner out. It is about sponsoring an American Girl Doll event. For these employees, it is just a typical day at the office.
