Stream Cares Foundation: Stream Energy Gives Back to Communities
Stream Energy has launched the Stream Cares Foundation, the official corporate philanthropy arm of the company. Through this new foundation, they will continue their partnership with local charities to give back to the communities in which they work.
The philanthropic actions of Stream Energy did not begin with the Stream Cares Foundation. The company has had long-term relationships with charities such as the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity already in place for over 12 years. The energy company is part of a model of giving by corporate America which has given over $18 billion in 2016. That doesn’t include sponsorships or efforts by individual employees, either.
The causes they support are many in number, including tackling homelessness in the Dallas area. This effort was in response to the unfortunate 24% increase in the numbers of homeless in the area. Hope Supply Co. is a partner with Stream Energy to give back and try to help the children of the area which are homeless. The two organizations put on an annual Splash for Hope at a local water park.
Stream Energy also wants to give back to those who have served their country with Operation Once in a Lifetime. The effort lends not just a financial support to area veterans and their families, but a moral one as well, donating transportation to take families out to a local favorite restaurant.
The Amerian Girl Doll Experience is for daughters of members of the military. Stream Energy pays for all the expenses as 10 girls are provided lunch at the American Girl Cafe.
The care that Stream Energy provides is not limited to the Dallas area. Hurricane Harvey brought disaster to Houston, dumping over 56 inches of rain. The Stream Cares Foundation provided funding, along with other area companies, to help ease the suffering after the disaster.
