Options, affordability, philanthropy. These may not be things you have associated with home energy service providers in the past, however, that is changing, and Stream Energy have been pioneers of that change since its’ founding in 2005. This past year Dallas and many areas in Texas was a prime example of the company’s corporate and individual philanthropy making a major difference in the lives of many who were affected last year by the devastating tornados and floods that ravaged Texas and surrounding areas, leaving many without homes and basic necessities. During this time Stream Energy sprang into action to help many Dallas residents who had endured so much.
Stream Energy has formed its own departmental arm within the company that focuses on philanthropic giving- “Stream Cares”. Formulating departments that focus on philanthropy is uncommon for most corporations, not to mention energy companies but Stream Energy isn’t your run-of -the-mill gas and electric company. They offer far more to their customers than energy resources and far more to the community at large during times of distress and need. Not only do they support their community monetarily, but the associates are hands-on and give of their time and energy.
In March 2018, Stream Energy was featured in an article on Patch.com where their philanthropic efforts in the Dallas area were showcased. One way that this innovative company helps the community is by supporting other organizations in the area such as the Salvation Army and an organization named Hope Supply Co., that provides resources for those who are homeless and their families. They also work with are veterans through “Operation Once in a Lifetime” which not only provided monetary assistance but also organizing events for them and their family members to have a meal and enjoy a special time of celebration together as a community.
Stream Energy is helping to set a new precedent for other energy companies who would only gain from following suit by providing so much more than energy services to the communities they serve.
