Philanthropy is always born out of a desire to do more and have more, but what about being more? Stream Energy is that one organization that truly opened up because someones desire was to be more than they were. In fact, the company desired to be a helping hand amidst a complete disaster. Hurricane Harvey brought devastation to the city of Dallas, but the end result was local companies coming together to aid in the recovery. Stream Energy and the Hope Supply Company were two such companies, and it was all on their own. One of the major challenges wasn’t just cleanup, but it was making sure that citizens of Dallas weren’t homeless after getting 56 inches of rain.
Houston neighborhoods were beyond flooded after Hurricane Harvey, leaving many to wonder how they would care for their families. Thousands lost their homes, personal belongings, photos, and pets. Stream Energy, a wildly successful energy company in Dallas took the initiative to help the community rebuild, and get the aid that they needed. The energy company was the first to jump in and start helping immediately. Although the company had been involved in prior events giving back, they were now at the helm of giving back to Dallas after the hurricane was over.
Stream Energy is a direct sales company, so getting face-to-face with people is nothing new to them. The best part about them helping the community is that they were helping some of their very own customers in the process. The company made it a point to start participating in events that would allow them to give back, but after Hurricane Harvey, they were able to finalize the goals of the foundation they now call Stream Cares. Formalizing their efforts and turning their foundation into Stream Cares, has allowed the company to not only solidify their efforts to give back around the country, but it goes without saying that Dallas loves Stream Energy.
