Stream Energy was recently featured on Patch.com where their many different philanthropy efforts were highlighted. One of these efforts is their close collaboration with the Hope Supply Co. that helps children that are experiencing homelessness in the North Texas area. Stream Energy works with Hope Supply Co. to distribute items to these children that will help them with personal care as well as provide a little bit of comfort while they are going through such a hard time. The Splash for Hope event partners with the Hawaiian Falls Water Park to make sure each child that goes has a good time and are given a fun picnic-style lunch at the park as well as a hat and a free pair of flip-flops to ensure that they have fun in the sun. Stream Energy sponsors hundreds of children so they can have the opportunity to take part in this event.
Stream Energy has always worked hard to serve their community in ways other than supplying eco-friendly electricity plans, but their new Stream Cares division goes above and beyond any of the efforts they have ever made before. Stream Cares is the division of Stream Energy that plans and coordinates all of the philanthropical work that the company is involved in. It may be true that a lot of companies take part in corporate giving, but to create a separate philanthropy arm and a charitable foundation is still rather rare in the business world.
Stream Energy is very concerned with homelessness in the United States, especially in the Dallas area. After Hurricane Harvey, the homeless population in the area went up. This number has steadily increased since then. In just Dallas alone, there has been a rise in homelessness by 24%. One of the ways that Stream helps with this effort aside from the Hope Supply Co. is by working with organizations like Habitat For Humanity where homes are built to help with the homelessness epidemic.
