Let’s talk about corporate philanthropy. Corporate philanthropy is a big deal in America, it protects companies from future scandals, boosts their image, and keeps their customers loyal and positive. Many companies are using this as a way to drive sales and image. However, a few companies seem to genuinely be involved in charities. One of these companies is Stream Energy. Stream has a weird business model, sure, and they also are a fairly new addition to the Dallas energy world. However, Stream has been active in making a difference in Dallas for years, and in far more than one way.
Remember hurricane, Harvey? Well, Stream Energy was one of the first companies with its feet on the ground in the aftermath. This action earned them an article on Patch.com, but that was only one of many charities that Stream had been involved in. It just took a hurricane for people to notice.
Stream was active during the tornadoes that hit the areas around Dallas. They raised thousands of dollars to help its victims. Stream Energy has also been active in combating the homelessness problem in Dallas. Stream donated meals and supplies to thousands of homeless children during the Splash for Hope. Beyond this, Stream has been participating in giving back to veterans. The company gave transportation and steak dinners to veterans and their families at a notable Dallas steakhouse. The company then proceeded to take the daughters of the military veterans to American Girl doll company and give them American Girl dolls and treat them to the American Girl Cafe.
Stream also has deeply-rooted relationships with both the Red Cross as well as Habitat for Humanity. Stream has always cared about charity. In fact, Stream just made the whole thing formal with the opening of their Stream Cares, group. This is a new charity organization opened by them recently. It’s hard to argue that Stream is leveraging charity for publicity because honestly, they keep the whole thing relatively quiet. But, if you look past the headlines, Stream Energy has been making a huge difference in the Dallas area for years. Stream is a great example of a company that truly seems to care.
