Stream Energy and its new philanthropic wing were recently featured on patch.com. Stream Energy is a Dallas based company that provides their associates with energy, who then market it to various companies. Stream Energy, its employees, and its associates are passionate about the communities they work in, and they want to be involved in charitable causes. For that reason, Stream Energy has set up a foundation called Stream Cares to help causes around Texas.
They were moved to action after seeing the devastation from Hurricane Harvey in Houston, but they have been giving to charities for over a decade. They are focused on issues that affect Texas, but they are most focused on the problems faced by the Dallas community. They have formed a partnership with Hope Supply Co to offer help throughout Texas. Stream Energy is using its profits to give back some much needed help to their customers.
They see homelessness as a huge problem in Dallas, and it is one that has only become worse in the last few years. They are particularly moved by the plight of homeless children in Dallas. Stream Cares raises money for everything from diapers to school supplies for children, but they do much more than just donate money. They and their employees want to give up their time to help the children, and they recently took a group of kids to a water park. For children like this it is a rare opportunity to have some fun. Stream Energy’s employees also enjoyed the experience, and they are always looking for ways to help those less fortunate. They know that donating time and effort is just as important as the money they give.
Stream Cares has also done work with veterans and their families, and they recently invited ten daughters of veterans to a function in which they all received toys.
