Stream Energy, a Dallas based direct sales energy company, recently launched it’s philanthropic arm, aptly named “Stream Cares”. Stream’s efforts were recently highlighted in an article by Leslie Kennedy on Patch.com.
This is not Stream Energy’s first brush with giving, however. While the company gained local recognition for being one of the first to give back to the community and aid in recovery efforts after Hurricane Harvey in 2017, Stream Energy by that time was already a veteran of the giving game; associates raised thousands for those affected by tornadoes in North Texas the day after Christmas in 2016, helping Texans in a vulnerable and difficult time during a time of the year no one should have to suffer.
One of Stream Energy’s proudest philanthropic ventures is their partnership with Hope Supply Co., a local company dedicated to helping solve the homelessness issue in Dallas by focusing primarily on the children of homeless families. A relationship over four years in the making, Stream and Hope Supply have worked together to provide for meals and entrance costs to the annual Splash for Hope for 1,000 homeless children. This event, at a waterpark in the summer, allows these children a moment of levity and enjoyment, to be truly carefree children for a moment and enjoy a day in the water under the sun.
Not forgetting our nation’s heroes, Stream has also linked up with Operation Once in a Lifetime to provide transport to and from a special lunch for impoverished veterans, complete with ribs, steaks, and hamburgers at an upscale Texas dining establishment. Despite Texas’ ranking as the least-giving state in the Union, Stream Energy is blazing a path forward to change that. “Stream Cares” is more than just a name or a flashy title; it is the truth.
Kimberly Girard, Stream’s senior events manager, told Patch that the company and it’s employees enjoy the chance to change people’s lives and are constantly trying to find new and innovative ways to do so. Giving is a quintessential part of Stream’s mission as not just a company, but human beings as well.
