Stream Cares, the philanthropic arm of Dallas-energy provider Stream Energy, was just featured in the March 5th article of Dallas Patch. The online news source recognized Stream Cares for its ongoing service to the community around it. Stream Cares has been a champion for the homeless in Dallas, partnering with institutions like the Hope Supply Co., The Red Cross, and Habitat for Humanity to lend aid to the less fortunate.
Hope Supply Co. endeavors to support homeless children. Through their partnership with Stream the two companies have been able to supply clothes, school supplies, and other essential to many families. Stream Cares paid for the entrance fee and lunch for over 1,000 homeless children who attended Hope’s Splash for Hope event. The event distributes money and supplies to homeless families while the kids enjoy a day at local water park.
Stream Energy itself has been dedicated to philanthropy for decades, dispensing $19 billion dollars to charities all over the world in 2016 alone. Philanthropy is part of the company’s DNA, which is why it founded Stream Cares as a more formal way to handle its ongoing charity. A philanthropic foundation operating as a separate entity within a business is an entirely original concept, one that sets Stream Energy apart.
Stream Cares facilitates strong relationships with charitable institutions, supporting their endeavors and participating in co-funded events. Their ongoing partnership with Habitat for Humanity builds or repairs homes for homeless families. Habitat also offers labor services as well as affordable mortgages through their sweat equity. Stream Cares is also heavily involved in disaster relief.
Stream Energy was one of the first corporations to take part in recovery efforts following Hurricane Harvey. They are presently partnered with the American Red Cross to aid in emergency services and disaster relief for any future calamities. In 2016, in the wake of the tornado strikes on North Texas, Stream partnered with the Salvation Army to support victims and aid in relief efforts. For Stream, philanthropy is part of who they are. Stream Cares is their way of changing lives as well as offering great energy services.
