Stream Energy Starts Stream Cares

The Dallas-based company of Stream Energy has created Stream Cares for their philanthropy causes. Not too long ago this direct-selling company launched Stream Cares. The launching of a separate arm of the company is relatively new to see. It offers the company dual advantages. It gives back to the community while it gets the respect and loyalty of potentially new clients and the public. Stream Energy has had a relationship with Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross for a long time.

There is one particular cause that Stream associates care greatly for, and it is homelessness. The company and its associates go so far as to track how many homeless people there are in Dallas alone. Stream Energy and its associates covered the entrance price and the meals for over 1,000 North Texas homeless children at the annual Splash for Hope, hosted by Hope Supply Company. This allowed Stream employees and management to give them the experience of a lifetime, as well as money and supplies that they need. Hope Supply Company routinely gives diapers, clothing, school supplies, and more to homeless children. Stream has worked directly with Hope now for four years.

Stream Energy’s quick response to aid Texas tornado victims in meant that Stream and their employees worked directly with the Salvation Army. Streams associates raised thousands of dollars for the people that lost their homes and businesses. Stream matched those donations, which doubled the amount of donations brought in by associates. Stream has also worked with Operation Once in a Lifetime. It helped to provide both moral and financial support to Dallas area veterans and their families. Stream Energy donated transportation to the less fortunate military veterans and loved ones, so they could enjoy a special December meal at a highly praised Texas restaurant. Then the next day they co-hosted an American Girl Doll Experience for ten daughters of military members. Stream Energy associates gave essential support as each girl picked a doll and then later ate lunch at American Girl Café. Stream, as a company, paid for all the expenses of the experience.
