Hurricane Harvey packed a powerful punch. Many were left homeless and without daily necessities like food, water, and even clothing. Life disrupted is putting it lightly. Stream Energy rose to the occasion and jumped in to help immediately following the disaster. The Dallas-based energy company has now fully launched their foundation, the Stream Cares Foundation.
Homelessness is the ultimate in a frightening experience, but residents were displaced as a result of the storm. With nowhere to go and a lack of supplies, Stream Energy combined their efforts with the Hope Supply Company to help. As a successful energy business, Stream Energy was able to give back not only to the local community, but they were giving back to their very own customers. To say that it was a pleasure to help these displaced residents is putting it lightly.
The energy company was now one of the first to fund the recovery efforts. It was reminiscent of all that the company entails, especially when it comes to giving back. Several large corporations in Dallas have made philanthropy a vital part of their DNA.
The Stream Cares Foundation isn’t just limited to Dallas. The idea for the company was to give back. The company has been involved in giving generously for a number of years, but the devastation from Hurricane Harvey was an opportunity for them to shine a light on this growing mission. It’s so much more than money as far as The Stream Cares Foundation is concerned.
Volunteering their time and effort is what it’s all about. The money is helpful when it comes to purchasing supplies and other needed items, but in the eyes of displaced residents, it was clear that caring for others was the primary effort.
Earning money is great, but for Stream Energy, it’s great if they are able to earn the respect and loyalty of the community of Dallas. Connecting with people on a personal level makes it possible for them to share light in their fullest capacity. It’s safe to say that Stream Energy knows how to build long-term relationships.
