While many businesses have used the term corporate philanthropy many times, there are few who constantly put their money where their mouth is. Stream Energy is one such company. Since being founded over a decade ago, the energy provider has been involved in quite a significant amount of charitable causes. Notable ones in the past have included partnerships with both the Habitat for Humanity and the Red Cross. Now, Stream Energy is developing Stream Cares, an arm of the business that will focus solely on its philanthropic efforts. The Dallas-based company will be using Stream Cares to enhance further the impact it has across the state.
For the majority of its history, the business’ charitable efforts have been led by its independent distributors. This is primarily because they’re local to the area and know what causes the community cares about and what affects it the most. This led Stream Energy to be involved in a variety of causes to help target the issue of homelessness in Dallas and the surrounding area. This was prompted by many independent distributors found that the issue was getting worse across the area. Because of this, the company began a series of partnerships with charities that were focused on tackling the issue.
One of the most notable of these has been with the Hope Supply Co, who have been active in the area for several years. Through the partnership, Stream Energy has donated a considerable amount of money, not to mention a significant amount of supplies to those who need it the most. Much of this has been led by the Hope Supply Co, who has developed somewhat of a reputation for the work it does in the area. Since entering into the partnership, Stream Energy has regularly donated the supplies that were needed by many homeless people across Dallas.
However, that’s not the only thing that Stream Energy has been involved in. It’s also been a part of the annual Splash for Hope event. The day helps bring much-needed funding and awareness to the issue, while also helping bring over 1,000 homeless children to go to a local waterpark for the day.
